Established in 2011, The Reader Berlin offers a range of creative writing workshops, seminars, and courses.
We've worked with hundreds of writers. From Poetry to Scriptwriting, Creative Non-Fiction to The Novel, we've got courses to suit every writer - no matter what stage of development your work is at.
Our tutors are award-winning authors and publishing professionals with a track record of helping writers meet their goals.
We run The Berlin Writing Prize …
… and have taken our workshops on the road to Prague, Stockholm, Brussels and Copenhagen.
We organise writers' festivals and writing retreats.
Our Berlin events bring together readers and writers …
... for author readings, live-writing competitions, music and the best damn cocktails Berlin has to offer.
We also provide author services, including mentoring, manuscript assessment, editing and proofreading …
... and work with businesses in Berlin and beyond, offering writing services and training in the fields of story-telling, blogging and creativity.
