Last year we have asked Hans Thill to name four German-language poets for 2018, whom he still misses on our website and would like to see and hear there in the future. His choice was striking: Paul-Henri Campbell (born 1982 in Boston), Marcus Roloff (born 1973 in Neubrandenburg), Sabine Schiffner (born 1965 in Bremen) and Martina Weber (born 1966 in Mannheim).
Hans Thill will present these four authors and their works this evening. On this occasion, they will be invited to the recording studio of Lyrikline and then promptly entered into Lyrikline.
