"CREATIVE WRITING: TRANSLINGUAL TEACHING AND LEARNING"
lectures / teaching at partner schools / participation in conference panels and workshops
since its beginnings in 1992, the vienna poetry school (schule für dichtung, sfd) has put an emphasis on internationality. in 2005, it was a founding member of eacwp - european association of creative writing programmes – and it consistently partcipates in international cooperations, conferences and eu-projects. from the start, sfd has been playing an active part in the theoretical discourse about teaching creative writing. it has an unquestioned competency in including different forms of media into the teaching of literary writing as well as a unique know-how in the field of sound poetry. increasingly, experience from other creative writing schools shall be included into teaching at sfd, especially the scope of multilingual and translingual teaching shall be improved. overall, this shall result in a productive exchange, which means a long-term and permanent process.
the presence of sfd at the international conferences in turin - with speakers and delegates expected from finland, italy, france, spain, czech republic, germany, denmark, sweden, romania, england and more – shall make the tradition of the viennese avantgarde, which is represented strongly at sfd, internationally known. it shall position sfd and vienna as an important and firm place in the area of teaching creative writing.
as a consequence of these conferences, it is intended that cooperations on a european level will evolve and that the exchange in the area of teaching creative language writing will be continued and further expanded. a definite aim is to invite european teachers/students/staff to vienna and at the same time to send teachers/students/staff from vienna to the partner institutions. further aims are intercultural and scientific exchange and reciprocal enrichment in all areas of creative writing, especially in pedagogical and didactical methods. the new teaching methods experienced at the conferences should serve as inspiration for sfd-teachers.
creative writing especially, often is limited by language barriers. teaching/learning literary writing in another language, which is not one's mother tongue, is an aspect to build on and it is something where a lot still has to be learned. the development of new methods in this field is also an aim. therefore, as part of this project sfd-instructors are teaching in italy and in madrid.
