Prague Literature Center of German-Speaking Czech Writers

The Prague Literature Center of German-Speaking Czech Writers is a meeting place for those interested in the famed "Prague Circle," - whose members included Franz Kafka, Max Brod, Egon Erwin Kisch, and other renowned German-language authors - and for fans of contemporary literature.

It was founded in 2004 by the last German-writing Prague writer Lenka Reinerová, the former ambassador František Černý, and the Chairman of the Franz Kafka Society, Kurt Krolop. Continuing in the tradition of German-language literature from Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia, the literature center wants to resurrect the city of Prague as an inspiring place where European cultures meet. Writers from a variety of European countries will be invited to Prague to stay and work and, in return, Czech authors will spend time in other countries. The exchange program for writers is being funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the German-Czech Future Fund.
