Writer in Residence – Katrin Zipse

I’m Katrin Zipse, German NES-resident in Skagaströnd this April. I’ve published several novels for children and young adults and also some radio dramas.

Right now I’m working on my first novel for adults. Since the story is located in Iceland I do a lot of research while I’m here, not only in the amazing library of Skagaströnd but also by walking through the countryside (being aware of the sounds, the taste and the gorgeous light) and by talking to the people. Besides that I’ve found my perfect place to write in the open studio of NES, among the other residents working on their art projects.  And there’s some really good stuff for stormy days.  https://www.katrinzipse.de/
