Lisa Krusche, Germany

Lisa Krusche was born in 1990 in Hildesheim and lives today in Braunschweig as a free-lance writer and journalist. She majored in German Studies and Art at the College of Fine Arts in Braunschweig and studied Literary Writing in Hildesheim. In 2019 she was a finalist in the 27th open mike competition in Berlin. At the 44th Festival of German-Language Literature in Klagenfurt in 2020 she was awarded the Deutschlandfunk Prize.

Following shorter publications in magazines and anthologies, Lisa Krusche published two works in 2021: her debut novel for all ages, “Our anarchistic hearts”, and the children’s book, “The universe is bloody big and super mystical”. For the latter, she received multiple awards, including the Hans-im-Glück Prize 2020, a nomination for the German-French Youth Literature Prize 2022, and a Kranichstein Children’s Literature Fellowship 2022. The Kranichstein jury wrote enthusiastically that, “Thanks to her unwearied and fresh tone of voice, learned from her own recent experience in media, she is one of the most promising new writers of children’s and youth literature.”

The events with Lisa Krusche are moderated by Lisa Thomasch, a literary critic.
