Without Borders: Online Hebrew Writing Workshop

The online writing workshop of the writers Mati Shemoelof and Itamar Orlev, who live in Berlin, is due to open immediately after Passover / Easter on April 30 (first session but one can enter it in any time). The online writing workshop will bring together Hebrew writers from all over Europe for a two-hour weekly meeting. In the workshop we will practice together the essential elements of writing.

Over the past year (2018-2019) we have been conducting workshops in Berlin whose success lies in the combination of the act of writing itself and the encounter of Israeli writers living for various reasons outside of Israel. In the online workshop we seek to eliminate the geographical distance that exists in our building and to allow an "intimate" encounter within the virtual space, which, too, will presumably have an impact on the nature and content of the workshop.

The opening workshop will be 10 sessions and will take place on Tuesday’s from 11:00 to 13:00 CET.

Hebrew Writing Workshop

  • Europäische Janusz Korczak Akademie (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Living in a different country, in a foreign society, forces us to deal with a variety of issues. It begins with the mundane and bureaucratic, continues with the dialogue between the foreign and familiar and goes deeper into questions related to national, cultural and personal identity. The language with which we speak and write plays an essential part in this process.

In Itamar Orlev´s and Mati Shemoelof’s writing workshop we will try to examine different aspects of our status as foreigners and Hebrew writers in Berlin through weekly writing exercises; we will try to understand how these can create a fertile ground for creation. At the same time, we will discuss literary texts from the past and present that touch on diverse dimensions of the encounter between art and immigration.

This is an opportunity to learn from two teachers with different perspectives and a rich and diverse writing experience, who will try to help you exact and develop the important elements in writing prose while focusing on the creative opportunities offered in Berlin. 13 sessions, up to 10 participants. Soon will open a new one and will updated the details.

Reading and Discussion: Europe - and No Land in Sight

In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its commitment to peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. As the populists grow stronger, however, it becomes clear that our free democratic basic order stands on extremely shaky foundations. Mati Shemoelof and Max Annas paint a gloomy picture of what Europe’s future could look like.

Reading from ´Bagdad, Haifa, Berlin´, Leipzig Book Fair

I'm very happy to read tomorrow at the Leipziger Buchmesse. Although my book has not been printed yet. However, they listen to a translation of the most important poems from the new book. If you are at the festival, listen to me in conversation with Rainer Zimmer-Winkel, the director of the AphorismA Verlag. It's really exciting.
