From March 2017 to December 2018, I worked for the local street paper TagesSatz which is part of the International Network of Street Papers (INSP) and sold both in Göttingen and Kassel. The aim of the paper is to help the socially disadvantaged. The vendors acquire the paper for its production cost (1,10 €) from the association and sell them for 2,20 € which means that they can make some extra money by selling the magazine on the street.

 

This is very important to them as having nothing to do and no aim in their life can badly affect their mental health. Selling the magazine helps them by giving them a duty with fixed working hours. Thus, the magazine helps them to abandon their social isolation and build a new social network which ultimately enables them to become a part of society again.

 

My first article has been published in the May issue of 2017, and my last article has been published in the December issue of 2018. I always liked the familiar atmosphere in the editorial department, and the freedom to write about whatever I would like to intrigued me. For example, I got the opportunity to contribute an article on the “Orange Revolution” and the “Revolution of Dignity” for our November issue and suggested a cover picture, featuring a wonderful wall painting in Kyiv. In fact, our vendors were able to sell every single copy of said issue which makes me very happy.

 

Unfortunately, due to insurmountable disagreements within the editorial department, I felt impelled to leave the magazine, which was a decision that was not easy for me to reach. Despite all the troubles in the last few weeks, I am very happy that I were able to work for this magazine because I had the chance to experience journalism and the opportunity to write about whatever interested me.

 

The language of the paper is German which is why all my articles are written and published in German, but I would like to translate some of them into English one day to reach a broader audience.

 

Below, you can download all my articles in PDF format. The list is complete. In total, I have published 19 articles with 29 pages in total. Many thanks to Sven Piepkorn, the designer at TagesSatz, who kindly provided me with high quality (print quality) versions of all my articles so that I can publish them on my site.
