Yes, participation in all consulting appointments and events (such as the Annual literary industry gathering) is free of charge for you. The project “Schreiben & leben” (=”Writing & living”) is supported by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe and the ERDF Fund.
The individual consultations take place at Mehringdamm 61 (second backyard), 10965 Berlin.
The project “Schreiben & leben” (“Writing & living”) builds on the previous WiSU project (WiSU stands for “Professional support for authors in Berlin’s independent literature scene” in German) and encompasses its services. A new important component of the project will be a mentoring program for curators of literary events. We will also undertake the adventure of supervising a cooperative society for literary producers.
In the individual consultations you can be adviced on a number of different topics such as signing up for the KSK, searching for a publisher or an agent, customer aquisition, problem solving (poor or late payment, work organisation etc.), help with applying for a scholarship as well as networking opportunities.
Each individual consultation usually lasts 45 minutes.
No. Consultations are also available in English, Spanish and several other languages. Please contact us to arrange an individual consultation in your language.
