Website for Prosanova Festival

The Prosanova Festival for Young Literature takes place every three years in Hildesheim. Due to the corona pandemic, it had to be moved to the Internet spontaneously in 2020.

A great festival and a great collaboration – Verena’s Design Studio took care of the technical implementation, the website and the layout for the timetable.

About Prosanova Festival

PROSANOVA 2020 ist ein Festival für junge Literatur, das vom 11.– 14. Juni 2020 online stattfindet, organisiert und durchgeführt von der Redaktion der Literaturzeitschrift BELLA triste.

Seit 2005 findet dieses bundesweit größte und bekannteste Event für junge, deutschsprachige Gegenwartsliteratur im Rhythmus von drei Jahren in der Domstadt Hildesheim statt. Aufgrund der aktuellen Lage wird PROSANOVA 2020 online inszeniert. 40 junge Gegenwartsautor*innen sind eingeladen, ihr Schreiben, ihre Texte und literarischen Verfahren in Hildesheim zu inszenieren und in über 30 Veranstaltungen einem breiten Publikum aus Fachbesucher*innen des Literaturbetriebs, Hildesheimer Bürger*innen, Studierenden sowie überregionalen Pressevertreter*innen vorzustellen. PROSANOVA 2020 versteht sich als Plattform für junge Gegenwartsliteratur, die gleichsam etablierte wie noch unveröffentlichte Stimmen einlädt und der die Abbildung der Mannigfaltigkeit literarischer Diskurse zentrales Anliegen ist.

“I believe that if you’re working to make this world a better place, you should have the best website and the best marketing tools available to deliver your message.” Verena Spilker, founder

“Verena works with creativity, carefully and reliably. She implemented our ideas brilliantly.”
Kerstin Meyer


“Working with Verena was one of the best things that could have happened to us in our situation: We had no experience in translating a real life festival situation into an online festival, but Verena was able to see us through in an uncomplicated manner. With a calm, patient and absolutely accurate and concentrated way of working, she built us a website which we see with pride and great pleasure.”
Elske Beckmann

Prosanova 2020

“Before contacting Verena’s Design Studio, I didn’t have a website and didn’t really get on with it myself. I chose Verena’s Design Studio because of their political orientation and community connection. I found the cooperation very helpful and am now very happy to have a new website and to get positive feedback for the website as well. I can gladly recommend Verena’s Design Studio!”
