Poets’ Corner

Poetry in the City Districts

takes place in September

Poets’ Corner floods the city with poems. Over an entire evening and with the kind support of the city districts and cultural institutions, poets living in Berlin and one collective present their work, reading in libraries, galleries, museums and cultural centres – there’s room for poetry everywhere!

As an analogue part of the festival, Poets’ Corner will take place in early September 2021 – right before the 30th anniversary of the Haus für Poesie.

The events will be held in German.

Project leaders: Peter Holland, Rudi Nuss
