Schools of Writing


Not unlike the Leipzig Literaturinstitut, the Institut für Sprachkunst was established at the Vienna University of Applied Arts, offering a two-year study course in literary practice. In addition, there are numerous schools of writing such as the Schule für Dichtung in Vienna and a school run by the Berufsverband der Schreibpädagoginnen und Schreibpädagogen (professional association of creative writing teachers) or writing workshops such as the Jugendliteraturwerkstatt (youth literature) in Graz or the Leondinger Akademie für Literatur. Playwriting workshops are organised, inter alia, by the Vorarlberger Kinder- und Jugendtheaterfestival, by the Drama Forum of uniT in Graz, which awards the Retzhofer Dramapreis, and by Forum Text.
