Klagenfurt connected: The writers-in-residence

Many authors who have once read  in Klagenfurt - whether as part of the Bachmann Prize or for the Literature Course  - always hold a connection with the city. An important factor in this respect is that the city has once again made the post of "writer-in-residence" a permanent fixture. In 2010 this was Karsten Krampitz who moved into the townhouse, this year however it will be none other than Bachmann prize winner Peter Wawerzinek.
