„Schreiben & leben“ is the new name for WiSU
You might have asked yourself why our logo looks different all of a sudden. You also might have noticed it in our newsletter.

This means: The free consultation days will be continued, as well as the Berlin Literature Calendar and there will be another Annual Gathering of the Literary Industry in 2020.
