The 2017 Berlin Writing Prize

The Reader Berlin’s fourth annual writing competition is now open. And this year, we’re offering our biggest prize yet… a one-month residency at The Circus Hotel, Berlin!

Until the closing date of July 31, 2017, we invite submissions on the theme ”Home is Elsewhere” from both published and unpublished writers resident anywhere in the world. Our aim is to promote fresh, original writing and provide a platform for emerging writing talent. This year’s judges include award-winning author Irenosen Okojie, author and creative director Michael Salu, SAND editor Florian Duijsens, writer and publisher Paul Scraton, and The Circus Hotel’s own Katrin Schönig.
