    Aims and Scope

    The 67th edition of Kürschners Deutscher Literatur-Kalender, reliably documenting the contemporary literary scene in German-speaking countries, records some 13,000 authors.

    Expressing no lit-crit judgements, the Literatur-Kalender presents living authors who write in German, whatever their nationality or geographical location may be. Entries provide information on address, biographical data, membership in literary organizations and associations, literary awards as well as each writer's publications.

    The extensive indexes, to be found in the appendix, have also been revised and updated thoroughly: they now contain more than 750 translators of literature (along with an index of languages), 1,250 publishing houses, 555 literary awards including recent winners, 550 associations, literary organizations, literary centres (Literaturhäuser) etc., 370 literary journals and periodicals, 72 literary agencies, radio and TV stations' arts departments as well as literary features to be found in the printed media.

    „Ein Monument aus Fakten“
    Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 21.12.2010

    "Der Deutsche Literatur-Kalender gibt einen Gesamtüberblick über die deutsche Gegenwartsliteratur ohne literaturkritische Wertung, ausschlaggebend ist die Veröffentlichung eines literarischen Werkes. Damit ist er eine ausgezeichnete Grundlage für die Literaturwissenschaft [...], von ihm profitieren aber auch Kulturwissenschaftler, Journalisten, Verleger, Buchhändler, Bibliothekare und viele andere Institutionen und Personen."
    Prof. em. Dr. Dieter Schmidmaier in: B.I.T. online 14/3 (2011)
