OPEN CALL FOR WRITERS

THE CITY AND THE LIGHTS

NON-FICTION TEXTS

In German metropolises, there are sometimes as many parallel cities as: Spätis in Berlin or zu verschenken boxes on Sundays or raves in the summer or the noise of ambulances almost all the time or ping-pong tables in the squares or rats wandering through streets and parks.

Because there are so many proliferating experiences, we would love to know: What is your constant? What is the element that repeats itself in your city days until it leads you to the impulse to tell it, touch it, draw it, photograph it, cry it, and well, write it. Or, maybe the opposite, maybe there are no constants and the city is a permanent composition of surprises, and then what are your novelties, what new secret did you discover today? Tell us!

From Alterfocus we will select 5 texts that will be published in the section of our blog "The city and the lights", because we want to spread those stories, of the strange, the simple, the playful, the melancholic, the exhausting, the wild, which can be here today.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

All Latin Americans living in German cities.
