»Poet in Residence«
Every year the museum awards the scholarship "poet in residence in Rheinsberg" to two authors. The authors find inspiration and peace for writing in a beautifully located apartment with a view of the castle park. The museum's own edition "Rheinsberger Bogen" presents the texts of the poets in residence in first publications.
