Guest 2009.

Nico Bleutge, born in 1972, received the first prize in the literary competition »Open Mike« in 2001. »klare konturen« (t: vivid outlines) was published in 2006. The poems in Bleutge’s second collection »Fallstreifen« (2008; t: Stripes of Rain) evoke bygone times and show the ephemeral process of memory in its development rather than its outcome. Bleutge regularly contributes literary reviews to newspapers, including the »Süddeutsche Zeitung« and the »Neue Zürcher Zeitung«. Currently he is working on his first novel. He lives in Berlin.
