“Culture needs presence” This is the conclusion of the Literaturhaus Graz. The supposedly lonely art of writing cannot do without an audience, indeed it needs the reader in order to exist. Authors have earned a real audience and readers the physical presence of the writers, the Literaturhaus concludes.

The Literaturhaus Graz has compiled the following programme under the title “Emergency Programme”. In the coming weeks, readings of various kinds can be enjoyed again, albeit with limited seating.

The Corona diaries, on the other hand, are entering their final weeks, and writing will continue until the end of July, when it will end – but there is still a new chapter every Friday.
