Programmarchiv

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.

    Englischsprachige Lesung und Buchpräsentation mit Saskia Vogel, Rachael Allen und Traci Kim

    Join us for an evening of readings and conversation to celebrate the launch of Berlin-based writer and translator Saskia Vogel’s debut novel "Permission".
    In their Most Anticipated Books of 2019 list, LitHub said:

    "If Joan Didion had written about the BDSM community in LA it may have felt a bit like "Permission" … When Echo’s father dies in a freak accident, grief pulls her under like a rip curl into a world of art models, dominatrixes and sex workers.”

    Saskia will be joined by Rachael Allen, poetry editor at Granta, co-founder of poetry press clinic and online journal tender. There will be readings from "Permission" (Dialogue Books/Coach House Books) and Rachael’s debut "Kingdomland" (Faber), followed by a conversation about coming of age stories, sex, craft, nerves, and finally, finally finishing your first book.

    Copies of both books will be for sale.

    Telling Tales: The Art of Creating Stories

    10:30 - 16:30Beitrag: 150€

    Workshop mit Roy MacLean

    Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell; factual or fictional, cool documentary or heartfelt family journey, practical travelogue or sparkling flight of the imagination. But to become an accomplished storyteller one needs time, a conducive environment, and a sensitive guide to direct and refine individual talent.

    In June best-selling author Rory MacLean will lead an exclusive, two-day creative non-fiction writing workshop in Berlin. Participants will be guided and supported on their creative journey. Both amateur and professional writers are invited to join. No experience is necessary. The only requirement is the passion to tell a story.

    The course will include morning talks on the craft of narration and introductory workshops on gathering material, note-taking, voice and structure. Rory will underline the importance of writing from the heart, using honesty and personal experience to fill one’s creative work with feeling and excitement. Afternoons will be dedicated to exercises and, if possible, one-to-one discussions or project pitches, helping to draw out individual skills. Together Rory and the participants will unpick the transformation of our ordinary encounters, epic journeys, family histories and imaginative quests into prose. Whether you aspire to writing journalism, a blog, memoir, personal essay or documentary, take this rare opportunity to work with one of the Reader’s favourite writers and most popular tutors.

    Rory MacLean is the author of more than a dozen books including the UK top tens "Stalin’s Nose" and "Under the Dragon" as well as "Berlin: Imagine a City", a book of the year and ‘the most extraordinary work of history I’ve ever read’ according to the Washington Post. His works – wrote the late John Fowles – are among those that ‘marvellously explain why literature still lives’. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he divides his time between the UK, Canada and Berlin.
