Seit 2006 finden in der Lettrétage ca. 120 öffentliche Literaturveranstaltungen jährlich statt – Lesungen, Workshops, Diskussionsrunden, literarische Performances und Formate dazwischen. Bekannte und unbekannte Autor*innen und Künstler*innen verschiedener Sprachen und Nationalitäten sind hier schon aufgetreten.

Seit 2013 liegt der Programmfokus u.a. auf neuen Wegen der literarischen Präsentation und Live-Produktion: Dazu zählen u.a. die internationalen bzw. transnationalen Literaturfestivals „Soundout!“, „¿Comment!“, „Berlinisi“ und „Syn_Energy“, aber auch das viel beachtete Netzwerkprojekt „CROWD“ und multimediale Projekte wie die Reihe „CON_TEXT“ oder das „Poetry Audio Lab“. Eine vollständige Liste der Lettrétage-Projekte finden Sie hier.

Als Ankerinstitution für die freie Literaturszene Berlins stellt die Lettrétage außerdem ihre Räume für Literaturveranstaltungen aller Art zur Verfügung. Zahlreiche freie Veranstalter*innen nutzen unsere Infrastruktur regelmäßig – für Literatur-Workshops, Lesereihen in verschiedenen Sprachen und Buchpräsentationen. Mehr zu den Möglichkeiten der kostenlosen Raumnutzung erfahren Sie hier.

Auf dieser Seite präsentieren wir einen nicht vollständigen Einblick in unser vergangenes Programm.

    The How to Book-Swap Party!

    19:00Lettrétage in der Veteranenstraße 21, Eintritt frei

    Book Swap Party by The Reader Berlin, Siena Powers, and Victor Breidenbach

    (c) Victor Breidenbach, Siena Miller

    It is time to let go of the fantasy that you will ever read Thomas Mann’s Der Zauberberg or Alfred Doblin’s Berlin Alexanderplatz. They have been judging you from their high shelf for long enough. You are an adult and will never find the time to read them! The time has come to let someone else carry the burden for a while.

    This book swap is about saying goodbye to the ambitions that are weighing us down. It’s about unshackling yourself free! So bring one or two books for the pile, but also make specific gifts to friends or foes. Offer unsolicited advice. Gift kinky novels to prudish friends. Try to sell someone a book they don’t want. Really give it your best. Work all the angles. Maybe you have a future in sales and this party is where you discover it!  Challenge someone to a sing off for the book you both want to take home. There may be hard feelings, which is why there will be wine and wrestling referees. Just don’t bring the books from the bottom of your book barrel. Books are tools and we need to start sharing ours with intent.

    Bring your friends! The only must is to bring a couple of books to swap and to read the fine print. Don’t worry, there will be posters  (Illustrated by Siena Powers and written by Victor Breidenbach) with all the information you will need.

    The Reader Berlin is a platform for all writers that hosts creative writing workshops, seminars, events, and literary get-togethers. The Reader tutors include award-winning authors and publishing professionals who offer expert insight, advice and encouragement to emerging writers.

    Use Your Voice: A Creative Writing Workshop For Women

    10:00 - 17:00Beitrag: 150€

    Workshop mit Madhvi Ramani und Mary Kelly

    Led by Madhvi Ramani, writer and editor (New York times, Penguin Random House), and Mary Kelly, playwright and actor (Nick Hern Books, Stinging-Fly Press).

    This is not a traditional creative writing workshop. You will use theatre and original writing techniques to connect your physical voice with your voice on the page. You will move, you will write, you will explore and expand your individual voice. For women who want to start to write, continue to write, or want to surprise themselves.

    Mary and Madhvi have twenty years combined creative coaching experience. Drawing from Madhvi’s background in creative facilitation (BBC) and Mary’s as an acting coach (The Opera Stage, Berlin and The Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin), they have developed a unique approach to creative writing for women.

    Note: This workshop is only open to women, trans and non-binary people. Places are limited to 10. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
