Workshop: Our Summer Public Reading coming up on Tuesday, July 5th, at 7:30 PM.

It's at the Volkshochschule (not the DAI!), Bergheimer Straße 76, in Heidelberg, in the ground-floor cafeteria. Free admission, free refreshments, great belles-lettres.

Please come! New members welcome. See the link above for directions.

Snapshots are available here from the 2007 VHS summer reading. Other photo collections from past meetings are also available here.

Ongoing workshop meetings are usually held at 7:30 p.m. at the Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut (DAI; a.k.a. "Amerika-Haus"), Sofienstraße 12, near Bismarckplatz/Adenauerplatz, 69115 Heidelberg.  Further directions are to be found on the DAI site.  Look for us customarily upstairs – take the elevator to "2. Obergeschoss." Enduring appreciation goes to DAI Director Jakob Köllhofer for providing the meeting space and moral support.

typewriterThe Heidelberg Writers Group comprises interested English-language writers and poets (published or not-yet-published) in or near Heidelberg or with ties to the region.  The group meets approximately monthly.  There are no dues.  Members share current works with the goal of fostering growth and advancing their craft.  Guests are welcome by arrangement.  Periodically the group presents members' work at public readings and events.  A print review was published in the past; plans are now afoot for a web journal.

     Joining is simple: subscribe to the email list and attend meetings and events.
