LEIPGLO TEAM

Our contributors

The team managing LeipGlo.com or producing our content embody the glocal spirit of this webzine. They are mostly volunteers. All are based in increasingly cosmopolitan Leipzig or have a strong connection to the city, and also international experience. They sport diverse nationalities, backgrounds and interests. They’ll be regularly taking on topics they’re passionate about from their own unique, hybridized perspectives – combining the local and international (global) elements they’ve gathered along their own trajectories. Expect opinion pieces, reviews and other event- or show-specific posts, poetry and short stories, and tips on how to navigate daily life as a world citizen and Leipzig resident.

We hold monthly editorial meetings at Basislager Coworking, our operations hub. Readers will be invited to some of them, to meet our contributors and brainstorm story ideas.
