Consulting Services

We run weekly consultation days for authors, editors, translators and literary event organisers. An one-on-one consultation usually lasts 45 minutes. Our schreiben & leben counsellors are highly experienced and successful freelancers who went through the same ups and downs as you might have and are more than happy to share their extensive knowledge. They will answer your questions and work with you on possible solutions – whether it’s about signing up for the KSK, the quest for a publisher or agent, customer acquisition, help with grant applications, networking possibilities or even strategies for work organisation and customer management. The consultation days are available in English, Spanish and several other languages.

Corona-Update: Besides consultations via zoom or telephone, we can offer consultations in person again! We are looking forward to welcoming you in our new office in Schöneberg! Kolonnenstraße 26, 10829 Berlin
