The event takes place at 7pm at CEST in Berlin. (Admission is free, but registration is required by 28th August 2013, email: mail@literaturwerkstatt.org.)

Proceedings will be live-streamed on the night at 7pm UTC+2. And you can explore the poems, from Albania to Zimbabwe, online now at www.lyrikline.org.
