    The Berlin Writers' Workshop is proud to present their first workshop reading, featuring fiction, poetry, and essays produced in their classes by members of the Berlin Writers' Workshop community.

     

    Berlin Writers' Workshop was founded to build an open international writing community in the cultural capital of Europe. The heart of the community is the writing workshop, where students read and critique one another's work under the guidance of a professional writer.

    Sara Anwar can only write wearing earplugs – which she uses to deaden the din of humanity. She is still not sure if she considers herself a part of humanity, or if she is content as the cat life companion of her cat. She is currently working on a piece of autofiction which considers the ideas of belief and mental illness, and how they are entwined with the experiences of her protagonist. Her novel is set between the cities of Karachi (her hometown) and Berlin (her home).

    Rebekah Coenen is an American writer living a brief sint in Berlin before moving back to Des Moines, Iowa. She's a graduate of the University of Iowa with a bachelors in English and a writing concentration. She is the founder of TheOpenGateBlog.com and was a freelance writer for Volunteer Local.

    B Duncan is a writer, performer and co founder of the queer collective Slanted House.

    Matt Gammie’s writing has appeared in the Sunday Telegraph, Banner Magazine and The Drum, amongst other publications. He studied English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, and will be reading from his novel in progress.

    Emma Lo is a writer and music maker in Berlin. She is currently working on an interview-based project about uprooted "traditional" music played in non-traditional spaces, or music preservation in global, transitory storage units.

    Jennifer Neal is a journalist, writer, standup comedian, and artist. As a comic and storyteller, she has walked stages in Australia, the US, Singapore, and across Europe. Her writing has appeared in CNN, The Root, The Establishment, Playboy, NPR, Handelsblatt Global and more. She was the runner up for the 2018 Octavia E Butler fellowship for the Jack Jones Literary retreat, and was nominated for the 2019 Pushcart Prize by a contributing editor. She is currently writing her first novel in Berlin. Follow her on Instagram @chocolatejenn Twitter @LadyGodiva83 or her blog (orijennofspecies.com).

    Berliner Lektorat: Rückblenden

    19:00Eintritt frei

    Referent: Hans Peter Roentgen

    Rückblenden springen aus der Erzählzeit in die Vergangenheit. Sie erzählen, was vorher geschah. Mit Rückblenden kann man den Leser*innen Details über das Leben der Held*innen erzählen, warum sie wurden, was sie sind, warum sie bestimmte typische Handlungsweisen haben. Oder über den Ort, die Historie und die Vorgeschichte des Plots erzählen. Das kann aber auch leicht in die Hose gehen, wenn es die Leser*innen aus der eigentlichen Geschichte herausreißt. Welche Techniken es für Rückblenden gibt, wie man sie so einbaut, dass sie die Spannung nicht killen und wie man feststellt, welche Rückblenden überhaupt nötig sind, darum geht es in dieser Veranstaltung.
