Young texts!
20 prize winners are invited to the Treffen junger Autor*innen 2021.

The jury has met and selected 20 young authors from the submissions as prize winners of this year’s Treffen junger Autor*innen. 367 young writers from all over the Federal Republic of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic put their thoughts and stories into short texts, prose and poems and submitted them. After a period of intensive reading, the jury of experts has now nominated 20 artists from 8 federal states and Austria who will be invited to the meeting of young authors from 11 to 15 November. In addition, 20 other applicants will receive a book cheque as a promotional prize for their interesting and promising texts.

We congratulate all the winners!

Our congratulations and thanks also go to all the creative young writers who worked on their texts and submitted them to us last year. We look forward to reading more from you next year and hope to receive many applications for the next edition.

During the festival in November, the nominees will have the opportunity to present their texts to an audience. In addition, there will be space to exchange ideas, to scrutinise the texts with professional authors, or to take away impulses for further work from the rich workshop programme.
