„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. Now for everybody: WiSU is no longer called WiSU, but „Schreiben & leben“. Why? First and foremost, because it is a new project. A lot of new things are going to happen. At the same time, a lot of things will stay the same: We will continue to support solo-self employees in the free literature scene on their way to an autonomous professional life. 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.

5 Reasons, why creators should seek consultation

5 Reasons, why creators should seek consultation

Within our project „Write & live“, we are regularly offering free consultation days for literary creators. You might ask yourself: Do I need that? If you are hesitant about the question whether you should seek consultation at all, we offer 5 reasons in favor of the consultation.

I. Nothing is more frustrating than a good idea failing due to practicalities

Never mind, whether the project in question is a manuscript for a novel, which does not get published, a fascinating Reading event which does not get any funding or a translation project, which remains unfinished: Consulting experts can save the day. There are already too many great projects, which never came into being because of errors in the execution. It doesn’t have to be like that.
