With the 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 new city writer is selected by an independent jury. Their texts can be found on our Berlin Stories Blog.
The new writer-in-residence for 2020 is Dana Vowinckel. She writes prose and poems about Berlin and was born in Kreuzberg herself. You can find more information about her here.
The jury also selected the following authors for the shortlist of Berlin Stories:
Julia Dorsch (Student of Social Work at the Alice Salomon University)
Sarah Kilter (student of scenic writing at the University of the Arts)
Florian Lehmuth (Student of Computer Science/Computer Sciences at the TU Berlin)
Elisabeth Pape (student of scenic writing at the University of the Arts)
Vinzenz Thuine (student of AVL at the FU Berlin)
The writer-in-residence 2019 was Josephine Bätz.
At regular intervals she wrote short stories or poems about Berlin and student life in the capital.
The first city writer in 2018 was Charlotte Wührer. She writes short stories, poems, Young Adult and Flash Fiction.
