Ready to Vienna, 2017

From May, 25 to May 28 the EACWP will be celebrating its XIII symposium organised by our partners of the Vienna Poetry School / schule für dichtung (sfd)

As every year, our EACWP members are now ready to travel from all around Europe to meet this time in the Austrian capital, where has been set the annual appointment of the association.

Along with the regular institutional reviews of the year, we will welcome our new members: Cal Smyth (UK), Scuola Omero (Italy), Linnaeus Univesity (Sweden), University of Creative Communication (Czech Republic) and Sadnaot Habait Writing School (Israel).

Also, some of our colleagues will present their own on going projects and current initiatives such as:

  • The CELA project: a translation initiative for emerging writers headed by our ArtEZ (The Netherlands) and Escuela de Escritores (Madrid).
  • Red PEA (the association of Creative Writing programmes of the America and its collaboration agreement with the EACWP).
  • The English Shared Futures event (Newcastle, 2017).
  • And the NAWE conference (York, 2017), among some others.

Additionally, the last day of the symposium (Sat, 27) will be entirely devoted to a representative sample of lectures and workshops meant to promote the pedagogical dialogue and exchange within a European setting. These are the main pedagogical proposals:

  • “Balkan Noir” (Cal Smyth / UK).
  • “The myth of Tristan in Western literature” (Lorena Briedis / Escuela de Escritores).
  • “Post-truth fiction” (Frank Tazeelar / ArtEZ).
  • “Balcony poetry” (Markus Kölhe / Vienna Poetry School).

Ultimately, as every year, the event will be concluded with our traditional EACWP open mic on Saturday evening.

Thank you in advance to our partners from the Vienna Poetry School for the valuable organisational efforts.

Now we are ready, indeed.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Vienna!
