Creative Writing

Welcome to the Writers’ Space

The Writers’ Space is a special event series for all students that take part in the creative writing courses offered at our institute. The Writers' Space gives you the opportunity to present your own writing, have it workshopped and get in-depth feedback. It also allows you to meet and network with fellow writers and our creative writing lecturers. If you are interested in joining, send an e-mail to Sonja Frenzel (sonja.frenzel(at)
