Three-day Kulturgeflüster Writing Workshop

2023/24 Workshop

Are you interested in writing and wondering how to actually write a review? Are you new to the subject or already have some previous experience? Would you like to write creatively about a performance from the audience’s perspective or are you passionate about culture and journalism?

We want to create a trusting space for young people to try things out and exchange ideas, where they can work on the practical basics of (journalistic) writing.
