We founded the Berlin Writers' Workshop to help build an open international writing community in the cultural capital of Europe. We believe great writers come from everywhere, and that literature doesn't begin or end in the university or private school.
The heart of our community is the writing workshop, where students can read and critique one another's work under the guidance of a professional writer. We also offer seminars, readings, and one-on-one mentoring.
Our instructors are working writers and translators. We've published books, taught in MFA programs and universities, reported news from around the globe, and written for the best magazines and literary journals in the English-speaking world. We decided to start our own workshop because we're zealous advocates for the workshop model and for creative writing as a way of life.
