German Whispers - The Endings where Cultures Meet

Room 349, Third Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
An evening celebrating the winners of this year’s German writing competition and the opportunity to hear to two high-profile German writers’ hot-off-the-press stories of migration.
Following previous successes, the third competition organised by the Institute of Modern Languages Research and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) challenges participants to continue the storylines started by authors Anja Tuckermann (Berlin) and Ulrike Ulrich (Zurich). The prize-giving will include readings of the winning and runner-up entries in each group, some of which are surprising, touching, complex, and a joy to read, as well as the endings crafted by the authors themselves. The event is organised in association with the DAAD and Goethe Institute, London, and is generously supported by the German and Swiss Embassies.
