Dear Readers,

Spring is upon us, and with it comes a new season of writing workshops offered by The Reader Berlin. Having taken a poetry workshop in the fall, I can say that the seminars are sure to connect you to interesting and talented writers, and to give you added incentive to focus on your own work.

If you're eager for feedback before workshops begin, Shakespeare & Sons is hosting a Works-in-Progress night later this week; in the inspiration department, Berlin Fellow Leslie Dunton-Downer will be speaking at the American Academy about her chance encounter with a singer in Tajikistan and the memoir the meeting inspired.

I hope to see you at one or more of these events. But as ever, please feel free to reach out and share content ideas, ask questions, or just say hello over

Cheers & Prost,
