Andreas Rainer
Andreas Rainer is a writer and journalist from Vienna. He is also the founder of the platform Wiener Alltagspoeten, a site where he collects snippets from Viennese everyday life. It became one of the largest social media accounts in Austria and is regarded by many as an authentic voice of Vienna. In March 2021 a Wiener Alltagspoeten book will be released, and there is also a podcast with the same name. Andreas also works for the international animal rights NGO Four Paws and the startup story.one. If you read German, check out his blog on life in Vienna and elsewhere. While Andreas was born and bred in Vienna, he lived across the pond in the US and Canada for three years, later heading the Vienna branch of the San Francisco-based food app Yelp. Furthermore, he made the short list (2015) and long list (2016) for the “Wortlaut” short fiction contest and tweets at @an_rainer, https://www.wieneralltagspoeten.at
