Frank Klötgen, born 1968 in Essen, is a Berlin-based slam poet, writer of hyperfictions and was a singer in the band Marilyn’s Army for more than 25 years.
In 1998, his multimedia novel Die Aaleskorte der Ölig was awarded with the Pegasus prize for German internet-literature by Die Zeit and ARD. The multimedia hyperfiction-novel Spätwinterhitze was published in December 2004 on CD-ROM as part of Beat Suter’s series edition cyberfiction. His best slam poetry texts were published in Will Kacheln (book and CD, 2007), followed by the novel Der Fall Schelling (book and CD, 2010; both by Voland & Quist publishers). His poems are collected in the books Mehr Kacheln! and Kitt!, while his latest release Büdchenzauber und Zechenverse is a mixture of novel and tourist guide, but also contains more than 30 poems.
Frank Klötgen is constantly on tour with a poetry show called ‘k.u.k.’ and writes a blog at stadtkind.tagesspiegel.de.
