Without being too much New-Age-esque and yogi-like, I think we all agree that Berlin is a magical place. But unlike other metropolises that have per definition spectacular sites and magical corners such as Rome, Paris or New York have, Berlin’s magic cannot be described with another word other then strange or odd. The only way to capture it in real words is by telling the singular stories of our everyday life and exclaiming in the end: this is Berlin.
Exactly this stories we would like to hear from our readers. Together with our favorite independent theater the Sophiensaele we are curating and editing a print booklet entitled The Strange Magic of Berlin in which we would like to present stories by our readers and followers telling their experiences about the life in Berlin. This booklet will be available at the upcoming theater festival Strange Magic by the Sophiensaele. Please send in your short story of a maximum of 800 words in English or German to email@example.com until November 14, 2013.
Together with the team of the Sophiensaele we will edit 10 stories to be printed and presented to the audience of the festival. Every participant will receive a copy and have the possibility to visit one piece of the festival for free. Also the stories will be presented online during the festival on here on I HEART BERLIN. We are very curious about your submissions!
