Open Reading at The Readery

Saturday, 5 October

You may have noticed that this is the same night as 100,000 Poets for Change!
Because that’s what this annual event basically is: an open reading, with a twist.

For this special event, we are still looking for writers of all kinds (not just poets!)
and other artists to share a sample of their work for a good cause.

Writing prompts:

• Our beautiful planet

• Hope in the era of climate change
• How we will make everything right.

As always, other topics are welcome. For this event, please keep the tone upbeat and hopeful.

Each writer/artist has a maximum of five minutes to share work.

If you’re interested in participating, please contact Lisa at:

All are welcome: people targeted by racism are especially invited. Listeners also welcome.

Entrance by donation. This event will raise money for Sustaining All Life, a global project that supports environmental activists to be more effective in their work.

Saturday, 26 October
19:00 - 20:00

Writing prompt:

We know this is vague; that's intentional.
Our aim is to leave plenty of room for you and your creative expression.

There is no right or wrong way to write about this topic.

You can write a short story.

You can write a poem.

You can write non-fiction.

You can write (and sing) a song.
You can write something personal.  Or not.

Other topics are also welcome; 
the prompt is there to get you started if you need an idea.

It's up to you.

Reading/presenting time per writer: five minutes
(Prose writers, shoot for 500 to 700 words.)

Write it, then come to the Readery and share it.
We can't wait to hear what you come up with.

You do not need to register for this event.

Listeners also welcome.

This event is FREE. Such events are made possible by the support of Munich Readery customers. If you buy English language books, we’d be grateful if you’d buy them from us. When you do so, you support a local, family-run business. Remember, online vendors can’t host author readings, kids’ storytimes, or writing workshops!
