Guardian Angels

Become a "Guardian Angel"!


The festival would like to offer the invited authors the option of being welcomed by a "Guardian Angel" and supported throughout their stay. The guests can enjoy the unique opportunity to be shown around the festival city Berlin by locals.

Being a mentor offers the "Guardian Angels" the chance to get to know "their author" and their literary work better. It is supposed to be a cultural exchange and open the possibility to the guests to emerge themselves in Berlin's city life in a friendly and personal atmosphere.

Whether you are originally from Berlin or have moved here from somewhere else - show the guests the side of Berlin you love most.  You could offer them a city tour, show them secret places, plan a culinary stroll through your area - whatever you like. What you do and how much time you spend together will depend on the schedule, needs and interests of the author.  This is a great opportunity for Berlin readers to meet some of the most important and exciting international writers working today. 

Are you interested in becoming a “Guardian Angel”? Please contact us  - we would appreciate your support!
