One thought on “About

  1. Dear editorial office of berlin beat,

    my name is Lilian Theweleit, I´m from Cologne, Germany and 17 years old.
    I loved writing and music (and all kinds of art there is) since I was very young and I still do. Propably even more now.
    I´d love to make a work experience in a magazines office, so I wanted to ask you if it is possible to make a “Praktikum” in the Berlin Beat office?

    Feel free to contact me!
    Yours sincerely,
    Lilian Theweleit
