Photo challenge and Sweepstake!

What does your perfect writing location look like, where you can be productive and creative at the same time? Would you rather write at home in front of your desk? In the library or even on the beach, sitting with your laptop under a sunshade?

  • Anne Lamott: Bird by Bird. Some Introductions on Writing and Life

  • Ulrike Scheuermann: Die Schreibfitness-Mappe

Take part and get one of the books for your summer reading!
