Charlotte Weitze, born 1974, is a Danish authoress of fiction, poetry, Lyrics and drama. She made her debut with a collection of short stories, titled “Skifting” (“Changeling”) 1996. That same year she received the Danish Writer’s Debut Award. A common trend in the authoress’ works is that they take place in a universe, which borders the ordinary and the world of fairytales. Charlotte Weitze writes modern fairytales like H. C. Andersen, Haruki Marukami, Franz Kafka or Karen Blixen. Charlotte Weitze has received several awards and honorary grants for her literary works.

She has published the novels:
“Fandekke” 2001 (the title is a novel construct – reminiscent of the mythical character “Vanderdecken,” in The Flying Dutchman),
“Brevbæreren” (“The Mail Carrier”) 2003
“Sværmeri” (“Courting”) 2010 published by “Lindhardt and Ringhof”
“Harzen-sanger” (“Harzen-singer”) 2013
“Den afskyelige” (“The Abominable Snowman”) 2016

Beyond “Skifting”, her collections of short-stories include
“Bjergtaget” (“Spellbound”) 1999
“Mørkets Egne“ (“Areas of Darkness”) 2005
“Det Hvide Kvarter” (“The White Neighborhood”) 2011

Where nothing else is indicated the books are published by Samlerens Publishing in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Charlotte Weitze has also written radio dramas for Danish Radio:
“Tandfeen” (“The Tooth Fairy”) 2003
“Parken” (“The Park”) 2006
and the Lyric, “Gerda Lyhns Ballader “ (“Gerda Lyhns Ballads”) (2010).
