Since 2018 there has been the first student city writer in Berlin. With the city writer project "Berlin Stories" we want to capture the specific perspective of Berlin students. Each year, a different writer is selected by a jury. After Charlotte Wüher in 2018, Josephine Bätz is now Berlin's new student city writer for 2019. She is a student of film studies in her first master semester at Freie Universität Berlin and has been writing mainly poetry and short prose since childhood.
During her last academic year in Ireland, during an Erasmus stay, she already dealt with the city of Dublin in the form of a poetry blog. Within the framework of Berlin Stories, she would now like to take the opportunity to explore and develop Berlin in various literary forms.
Read the Berlin Stories Blog here. NB: the stories are mainly in German.
