mikrotext is a publisher for texts with attitude and for new narratives, founded in 2013 in Berlin.

If you want to know more about the motivation to found a digital-first publishing house, we can recommend this interview with publisher Nikola Richter on The Writing Platform.
Meanwhile we have also printed titles in our programme.

The short summary: We focus on new literary texts that comment on contemporary questions and allow insights into tomorrow. The texts are inspired by discussions on social media platformes and reflect today’s global debates. All texts are published in German, but selected titles will be made available in English.
