"...the water does not look behind
It flees, runs farther away
Where eyes will not see her,
the water wanders..."

Bronisława Wajs (Papusza)

"Oh, how beautifully the forest rustles for us-
sings me songs.
How beautifully the rivers flow,
they fill my heart with joy.
How delightful to behold the water deep
and to tell her everything.
Because no one can understand me,
only the forests and streams.
What I'm telling here it has all long passed
and took everything, everything with it-
and my younger years.'

A message from Fredy  Hoffmann Reinhardt to all members of LITERATURE, Major Group on World Artists Initiative "Khetanes"!

(Els: I believe this message is important. That is why I copy-pasted it here as a comment. Thank you, Fredy/Yanko!)


I just would draw your attention on Friedemann Bach, son of Johann Sebastian Bach( I think I don´t have to explain who he was)Friedemann too was a great musician, almost like his Father. He fell in love with one of our beautiful Girls and decided to spend his life with her and her family. So he did. He became one of us, spoke finally romenes etc.  But of course the King of Prussia , as well as Father Johann Sebastian, were both very upset and tried to get him back to "civilisation". But Friedemann refused. It´s a very interesting and long Story. Part of a book, titled "Friedemann Bach"
Devlesa, o Yanko

***EINLADUNG an Roma und Sinti...H.C. ARTMANN LITERATUR-STIPENDIUM...
02/02/16 Das H. C. Artmann-Literaturstipendium 2016 ist ausgeschrieben für Roma- oder Sinti-Autorinnen und Autoren.

In Erinnerung an den Poeten und Sprachkünstler H. C. Artmann vergeben „Wissensstadt“ und Literaturhaus Salzburg bereits zum neunten Mal das H. C. Artmann-Literaturstipendium. Eingeladen sich zu bewerben sind heuer Roma- oder Sinti-AutorInnen, die auf Deutsch schreiben, bzw. von denen Texte auch auf Deutsch veröffentlicht sind.

Die Texte der Bewerber sollten sich mit der Gegenwart auseinandersetzen und sich „durch künstlerische Eigenständigkeit, Innovationsfähigkeit und Authentizität auszeichnen“.

Vorgaben zu literarischer Gattung oder Thema gibt es nicht. Dennoch werde die Jury Augenmerk auf Arbeiten legen, „die sich der räumlichen, sprachlichen und thematischen Grenzüberschreitung widmen und zur Auseinandersetzung mit der Gegenwart beitragen“. Die Autorin oder der Autor bekommt die Möglichkeit, in einer Literaturzeitschrift zu publizieren und ist eingeladen, an der Universität oder an Schulen lesen. Erwartet wird literarische Tätigkeit während des Aufenthalts in Salzburg, sowie die Bereitschaft zur Teilnahme an Veranstaltungen.

Für acht Wochen - von 3. Mai bis 26. Juni 2016 - erhält der Stipendiat oder die Stipendiatin eine Wohnung in Altstadtnähe. Zudem beinhaltet das Stipendium 2.000 Euro und eine Refundierung von Fahrkosten bis zu 500 Euro. (InfoZ)
Einreichungen bis 6. März - Ausschreibung H. C. Artmann-Literaturstipendium
