2019 Berlin Writing Prize
Preisverleihung und Buchpremiere mit S.K. Perry, Victoria Manifold, Anbara Salam, und Traci Kim
“The Circus” is the name of the new anthology published by KLAK Verlag. The compilation presents the winning texts of 2019 Berlin Writing Prize, including works by S.K. Perry, Victoria Manifold, and Anbara Salam. Over 350 writing samples were submitted to be examined by the committee. The judges May-Lan Tan, Elnathan John, Sophie Mackintosh, Martin Jankowski, Katrin Schönig and Victoria Gosling have chosen their ten favourites for publication.
"To me, the circus represents any situation or condition in which the outlier has dignity and purpose and finally belongs. It’s a place where unusual qualities are valued, protected, celebrated." - May-Lan Tan, author
On January 31st, The Reader Berlin and The Circus Hotel are joined by their partners, sponsors, the judges, and the winning authors of the 2019 Berlin Writing Prize. The evening program includes readings, mingling with authors, literary chats, and the opportunity to purchase the new anthology published by KLAK Verlag.

Use Your Voice: A Creative Writing Workshop For Women
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.
