Dear Miss Read community,

We hope you are all fine. As you probably know the Coronavirus epidemic has spread worldwide.

The German government forbade public gatherings that bring together more than 50 people. It’s likely that the situation will get worse in the near future and the government won’t allow any public gathering before the epidemic progression is reversed.

We regret to inform you that Miss Read cannot take place at HKW on June 5-7, 2020 as planned, since we can’t guarantee the safety of the event and everyone involved.

We are currently investigating possibilities in which framework Miss Read is going to happen this year, and how we can take the program online. This includes this year’s focus on publishing practices from the African continent and African diaspora as well as the Conceptual Poetics Day.

We are planning to produce a publication, distribute it to all (would-be-) participants, and to make it available to anyone interested.

Stay tuned for further news, and above all, keep caring and stay healthy,

Yaiza, Moritz and Michalis
