In Aug/Sept 2015, our group was lucky to meet and workshop with a number of Bhutanese writers.
In Thimphu we met Pema Gyaltse, Chador Wangmo and Karma Norbu, also Rinzin Rinzin (not in this pic).
After our workshop an impromptu book signing with Pema. her childrens books are widely available in bookstores across Bhutan.
Karma Norbu also brought copies of his novel. Here he is signing a copy for Australian author Walter Mason.
In Punakha we met with Dechen and friends
It was fantastic to have them join in our workshop
In Paro we met another Karma
And his poet colleague Ugyen Tshomo
It was an excellent exchange!
