Call for entries: writer-in-residence wanted for "Berlin Stories"

We are looking for the next writer-in-residence for the year 2022!

The studierendenWERK BERLIN is entering its fifth round with the student writer-in-residence project "Berlin Stories". In 2022, we will again award a Study&Work fee to a student who writes Berlin-related texts from a student perspective. Whether poems or short stories, essays or comics - the main criteria is that the texts are literary and have a thematic connection to your life in the capital. The texts will then be published on our online blog.

The inaugural reading will presumably take place in January 2022, further appearances at the reading platform Lies los! and various other online and offline events of the studierendenWERK Berlin are planned.

The new round will run from February 1, 2022 - January 31, 2023, during which time 2-4 texts per month should be submitted. Further requirements can be found in the conditions of participation. Applications, including a letter of motivation and a sample text, are now being accepted via the form below.

The deadline for applications is 15.10.2021!

A jury will select one student from all applicants at the beginning of December.
