Club for the promotion of creative writing in English
by non-native speakers

Welcome to Writers Ink e.V.

Are you a writer – and writing in English, even though it is not your native language? Are you an English teacher – and looking for creative writing projects for your school? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Writers Ink. e.V. organizes the Daniil Pashkoff Prize, a creative writing competition in English for non-native speakers. Perhaps you would like to participate? Or maybe you want your pupils or students to send in their entries?

Most of our members are active in Germany, but our members come from all over the world. Some are native speakers of English, others are not, but we all love the English language.
Interested? Please join us for a round of words!

We offer:
– The Daniil Pashkoff Prize for Creative Writing English by a Non-Native Speaker
Creative writing courses and workshops in schools and other institutions
– Readings and publications (we have already published seven DPP anthologies)
– Evaluation and discussion of texts as well as useful tips and tricks for writers

Daniil Pashkoff Prize 2022 – Submit your entry online
