Welcome to the Writing Workshop 2.0! This year we are setting out from PACT Zollverein on writing excursions in the surrounding area. We will explore the north of Essen and write texts about extraordinary and everyday things that we encounter in Katernberg - or could encounter, because creativity is expressly welcome. So pack your notebooks and let your imagination run free!

Unfortunately, we cannot plan a public reading this year at the end of the writing workshop, but we will make your work visible and audible in other ways: in a book, on the internet, on the radio, and above all in the city.
