Opening reading of the writer-in-residence 2020 and final reading 2019
Berlin Stories is already in the 3rd round! The writer-in-residence chosen by the jury in 2020, Dana Vowinckel, will make her debut at this opening reading.
She is studying German Linguistics and French at the Humbolt University Berlin. At her first reading as a writer-in-residence of the studierendenWERK BERLIN she will read her first texts created for Berlin Stories.
At the same time, this is the opportunity to listen for the last time to Josephine Bätz, the 2019 writer-in-residence, who reads poems and short stories about Berlin.
In addition, at the opening reading, the authors who have been shortlisted by the jury for Berlin Stories will read. These are:
Vinzenz Thuine (student of AVL at the FU Berlin)
Elisabeth Pape (student of scenic writing at the Universität der Künste)
Florian Lehmuth (Student of Computer Sciences at the TU Berlin)
Julia Dorsch (Student of Social Work at Alice Salomon University, absent)
Sarah Kilter (student of scenic writing at the Universität der Künste, absent)
The reading is linked to the vernissage of the exhibition "the city opens the windows (its eyes)", which shows photographs and texts by Josephine Bätz: www.stw.berlin/en/kalender/ausstellung-stadtschreiberin.html

With Germany's first student writer-in-residence project "Berlin Stories", we want to capture the specific perspective of Berlin students on their city over a longer period of time. Each year, a different writer-in-residence is selected by an independent jury. We publish the resulting texts on our Berlin Stories Blog and on the cafeteria screens of the studierendenWERK BERLIN.
