rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 18.30h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.

We are looking for some volunteers that would be interested to work with us from September onwards. As a not-for-profit bookshop we are super grateful for the support from our volunteers over the first year. As our shop is growing we want to reach out to grow our team.
We are looking for people interested in helping with the bookshop and our events. In the fall we will be expanding the opening hours of our bookshop, and be more accessible, taking into consideration the current health and safety measures. In particular we need a few people to take care of the bookshop, each approximately two days a month. This would entail taking care of the shop, the sales and the guests. The opening hours would be from around 12h to 18h. We would be looking for people available either/or on weekdays or weekends.
We will offer our volunteers a small daily fee (40€) and a discount in the shop.
If you are interested or if you have any further questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before the 17th of August. We will get back to you after the 17th. x
Please send a short introduction to yourself and list the possible times and days you would be interested to volunteer.
Looking forward to meet you!
