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.

SAND 26 Launch: Shifting
Sand 26 Launch Party. Featuring Déborah-Loïs Séry, Lukas Kofoed Reimann, Max Steiner, Bachittar Singh and Frances Margaret Rebollido.
The poetry, prose and art of SAND 26 linger in the in-between, unable to pick a reality, or unwilling to face what the new reality might be. Or perhaps choosing to reject reality altogether in favour of alternative worlds.
Join SAND to celebrate the launch SAND 26 – their “shifting” issue. The night will feature readings and talks from Berlin-based writers and artists from the issue, as well as the team behind the journal, including a dive into the process of making SAND 26 with graphic designer Déborah-Loïs Séry. Stick around afterwards for drinks and celebrating!
Based in Berlin, SAND is a non-profit literary and art journal published twice a year by a team from the city's international community. Featuring work by writers, translators, and artists from around the world, SAND seeks out fresh and underrepresented perspectives.
SAND 26 will be available to purchase on the night alongside a range of previous issues. This event will be held in English.

(c) Battichar Singh
Bachittar Singh is a professional printmaker, specialist printmaking technician and instructor. His print-making practice involves creating compositions which let him tell stories, through expressive mark-making and tones to communicate texture and light on surfaces. Creating a series of prints further explores the idea of a narrative driving the direction of the story, a visual code tied together through repetition. Much like his drawings, Singh incorporates found objects, fabrics, materials, and natural elements into the etching process.
(c) Frances Margaret Rebollido
Frances Margaret Rebollido is a transmasc nonbinary writer from the Philippines. They express mostly through stream-of-consciousness prose and poetry.
