Kill Your Darlings

Friday, 1pm – 8pm
Saturday, noon – 8pm
Open workshop for bloggers and those who want to start blogging, with Valerie-Siba Rousparast & Caren Miesenberger (friday), Magda Albrecht & Leah Bretz (saturday)

How to blog—particularly in times of conflict, whether on a private or a political level—is gaining meaning on the internet. What cannot find space anywhere else can be shared with others on blogs through writing, or in the form of photos or sounds. This workshop explores how that works.

Valerie-Siba Rousparast has been editor at MissyMagazine since 2016. Since her studies in Ethnology and Gender Studies at the University of Göttingen, she has additionally worked as a freelance photographer and author. Her areas of interest are intersectional feminism, pop culture, and digital communication.

Caren Miesenberger is a freelance journalist and covers queerfeminist topics. At the moment she organizes a crowdfunding campaign for the queerfeminist, intersectional Missy Magazine. She furthermore is a social media editor at the NGO we are doing it e.V. and a meme-maker. @cccaaarrreeennn
