Straight stories about queer life
The first three BuchLabs had as theme: Queer life is relevant.
Sechs Autor*innen haben in einer intensiven Woche geschrieben. Sie spielten mit Identitäten und Rollen, mischten Ideen und schmiedeten diese zu spannenden Erzählungen.
Layers of naked
Writers from different European countries came together to share their stories. Together, they embarked on a transnational writing journey, connecting different languages in collective texts.
The BuchLab travel guide
After three BuchLabs we have broadened the project. To be able to scale it up, we have write down our experiences in a practical guide for BuchLabs. This will allow us (and others) to roll out this format and empower a broader group of authors. A practical guide and travel companion for your own writing journey.
The BuchLabs makers
Mio Lindner (left): As a writer and traveller between worlds, I experienced the changes of perspectives and realities. In inviting people to listen to stories, it's possible to give a glimpse of a different reality and raise a level of understanding. Stories accompany our life, they stick in our minds - use this to tell about queer life.
Bram Vermeer (right): As a publisher, I have seen the power of stories. Especially so, if several authors have worked together on them. Books give wings to their authors. And they affect the reader. This can illuminate queer life.
