Call: Writer-in-Residence for Berlin Stories

We're looking for the next student writer-in-residence for 2023! We extended the deadline to 30 November 2022.

Once again, we're offering a monthly study & work stipend to a student who will write about their experiences in Berlin. Whether as poems, prose, essays or comic -  as long as the texts are literary and related to your life in the capital! The texts will be published on our Berlin Stories blog.

The opening reading will most likely take place on February 9th 2023. Additional readings at our Lies Los events and other on- and offline events of the studierendenWERK Berlin are also planned. The new writer-in-residence will be in office from February 1st 2023 to January 31st 2024. During that time frame, we would like to receive 2-4 texts per month. Additional requirements are in the conditions for participation.

Applications - including a one page letter of motivation and a two page text sample - can be handed in through the online form below.

The new application deadline is November 30th 2022!

A jury will choose a student from among the applicants - the winner will be announced before Christmas!
