Die Autor*innen, die jährlich zu „Nahaufnahme“ eingeladen werden, sind frühere Teilnehmer*innen des Treffen junger Autor*innen.

Every year, former participants of the Treffen junger Autor*innen are invited to Nahaufnahme. For over thirty years, the meeting has honoured exceptional writing talent between the ages of 11 and 21. These are selected by a jury from a large number of applications. They often already demonstrate an awareness of the possibilities of language and a love of experimentation, which often leads to the young talents choosing writing as their professional perspective. They work on their first major writing projects and publish their texts in anthologies, magazines and on the Internet.
The chronicle of the meeting of young authors lists several writers whose texts and books have been published by renowned publishing houses. The aim of the close-up is to support the young authors in their writing and on their way to a professional writing existence.
During the close-up, participants work with experienced authors on their own texts and share their personal views and experiences of the writing process.

Nahaufnahme 2024 at the Leipzig Book Fair

As part of the Leipzig Book Fair and in cooperation with the lyrix national competition, three authors from the eighth year of Nahaufnahme will present their texts at the Long Leipzig Reading Night. Interested parties will also have the opportunity to experience them live at the Deutschlandfunk stand.
In addition, the young authors will take part in a one-day writing workshop led by Uljana Wolf together with three authors from the lyrix national competition.
