The SidewalkScribeBespoke Poetry & Tailor-Made Stories by Vinski Valos

Hello! 

I'm Vinski Valos, or the Sidewalk Scribe, a typewriter poet and storyteller, language acrobat and student of philosophy.

I lug my citric-yellow typewriter to Berlin's markets to transform people's experiences, memories, crises and dreams into improvised poetry.

Where to find me:

  • Kollwitzplatz: 

Saturdays

  • Mauerpark: 

Sundays

  • + Maybachufer:

Tue & Fr (occasionally)

 

Have a story written specifically for you

Besides Berlin streets, I also write stories to order. This gives me more time and tranquility to plan out a beautiful, longer-form story than does the usual marketside turbulence. Working with your requests, I will craft a customized narrative about [your thing*] and mail it to you.

The stories ship as old-school typescripts, wrapped into a topically illustrated origami envelope. 

For now, you can just fill in the form below, and put me to work. You can donate me whatever you like afterwards. Available worldwide! I'm happy to answer any questions at contact@vinskivalos.com

*[relationship, party, memory, pet, childhood toy, life crisis, philosophical confusion, hobby, line of work, company, painting,composer, fetish,building, band, friend, fave artist, pet-peeve politician and/or any other obsession or whim you decide to toss me with]

Events and Workshops

I love performing at parties, festivals, weddings, and events of all stripes. Drop me a line with your proposal, and we'll find a way to make it work.

The Process

A colorful thread of thought here, another there. On my click-clacking loom, I weave you a textual textile, and, measuring your life with the occasional question, tailor it along your contours. Voilà – you're ready to go, you dapper thing!
