Writing Workshop 2014

The International Summer Course for New Music Darmstadt will be accompanied in 2014 again by young music journalists who take part in the Writing Workshop. In texts and audio pieces they will report in German and English on courses, concerts, lectures and projects, conduct interviews and discuss the results with colleagues. The tutors Björn Gottstein (SWR, Stuttgart), Stefan Fricke (hr, Frankfurt am Main) and Christopher Fox (author and composer, London) will offer practically oriented lessons for beginning music journalists in the field of the new music.


During the two weeks of the course, introductions to various forms of texts and media will be given, insights into the profession will be provided, texts will be discussed, and, most importantly, new ones written. Interviews with composers and musicians are as much a part of the curriculum as the writing of a concert review or the production of a radio report. How does one write for the radio, or for a specialized journal? And how does one convey a musical impression in writing? The project is aimed at everybody who wants to write at professional level about new music or already does.
There will be a special application procedure for this project, a call for papers will follow soon.
