Welcome!

More and more people of all languages have made Berlin their permanent residence, cultural home and center of life – turning the German capital into a multilingual metropolis. Not only has the city been repeatedly depicted within numerous prominent, renowned literary works, but with various international authors choosing it as their actual living place, Berlin has now become a major center of world literature. Hence after the STADTSPRACHEN festival of 2016 this online literary magazine was founded to present Berlin’s multilingual contemporary literature and to create a platform for all future activities of STADTSPRACHEN and its partners. The texts are available in several languages!

We consider it to be crucial to finally raise public awareness for the multilingualism of contemporary Berlin literature by highlighting its influences on the German literary scene as well as its international influence and interrelations: We are proud to present Berlin’s multilingual contemporary literature! This is why a special festival of the non-German-speaking, Berlin-based authors and literary groups took place citywide from October 28 to November 6, 2016. For the first time, multilingual actions and performances, discourses and encounters had been heard in all the diverse voices of the city: the STADTSPRACHEN!

Submit your prose, poetry or blog posts if you are a non-German-speaking, Berlin-based writer. We look forward to reading your work. Photos/illustrations are equally welcome. You can reach us under info@stadtsprachen.de.
