The Women Writing Berlin Lab has celebrated its first birthday! It has been an amazing year full of creativity, fantastic women, and cutting-edge projects. Our community grew thanks to the passion and motivation of all the women who trusted our initiatives and joined us since the very first writing lab session in July 2017. To celebrate your support and the beauty of this community, we are launching our very first publication project the Women Writing Berlin Magazine.
The Women Writing Berlin Lab is a writing community for women in Berlin aiming to promote events, meet-ups, workshops and writing labs for female writers based in the city. We are an inclusive community open to everyone who identifies as female and feels involved in the writing field.
We address our activity not only to writers but to every woman looking for a safe space to express her creativity and to share her stories and feelings with other women writers.
We believe that women need to gain more space and visibility in the media and within the current institutions and policies. Therefore, we want to build both digital and real spaces for women to raise their voices and tell their stories through writing and community projects.
The WWBL Magazine will be a physical space for your words and your voice. We would like to collect your written works and also some other forms of art such as illustration, photography, comics and more.
The theme of our first edition will be MOVEMENT. Movement as a way of living life, influencing thoughts, being moved or moving others. Movement that is physical or abstract, existential or concrete. Movement in travel, in still moments, in short or long distances. Movement as the motor of life and change.
Now that we have selected the material from the submissions we got, we're ready to start the production of our magazine and we would appreciate a little help from you to cover the financial cost of printing and producing our project!
Risks and challenges
Challenges of this project is being able to deliver our magazine by the mid of Summer 2019 :)
We are confident we will make it with the support and the help of all the WWBL Team! <3
