Join our BuchLabs
Create a book in an inspiring week and take it back home hot off the press.
Sechs Autor*innen haben in einer intensiven Woche geschrieben. Sie spielten mit Identitäten und Rollen, mischten Ideen und schmiedeten diese zu spannenden Erzählungen.
International BuchLab (5-10 May 2019)
In this BuchLab writers from different European countries will come together and share their stories. Together, they will embark on a transnational writing journey, connecting different languages in collective texts. At the end of the week we will publish the newly written texts in a collaborative book. Participants can take home the book hot off the press next to new experiences, ideas and texts. There are still few places left!
The BuchLab Report
After two BuchLabs we will broaden the project. To be able to scale it up, we will 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. Stay tuned for updates about this practical guide.
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.
