Write, think and feel with all senses

In writing we reflect, find access to the world and to ourselves. In workshops and seminars we approach the cultural technique of writing in different contexts. We invite editors and authors from our publishing partners to participate. Writing and thinking are, in the best case, connected with each other and through sensing. We go in search of traces.

Unleash the magic of writing, poetry, and captivating compositions.
