Our workshop team

Sara Hauser
Workshopleitung The Poetry Project

Sara Hauser is a poet, literature mediator, and lecturer in Inclusive German Didactics. Since 2016, she has been guiding people in academic and educational settings in writing. In 2019, Sara conducted her first workshop at The Poetry Project, where she discovered how enriching it is to write lyrically with young people on their own themes. Since then, she has regularly organized multilingual youth writing formats.

For Sara, writing is a social and artistic practice that enables encounters and shared learning. Alongside her poetry collective, Sara is curating the reading series "textOUR - Collectivity & Care - a poetic polylogue" in 2024/25. Since May 2024, she has been pursuing a doctorate in multilingual poetic writing with students in inclusive contexts at the University of Potsdam.
