Event Details

Authors get the chance to publish texts about their experiences grwoing up.

Until July 31st, 2022 all writers have the opportunity to publish their poems, shortstories, letters, notes or diary entries in “Growing Pains“ a collection of texts concerning growing up with different upbringings. The miscellany focuses on various perspectives and experiences that are entwined with diverse sexualities, ethnicities, gender identities, age and income differences. Leena Wachter and Natalie Zeller are two students at the University of Vienna and have conceptualized this project in cooperation with the Publisher Danzig&Unfried.

English and german contributions can be submitted and published but the choice which language the authors will use is up to them. This project wants to ensure that as many perspectives about growing up as possible will be represented in the finished book. By already being published the authors will also gain a higher chance to establish themeselves in the literary field.
