Peter Van der Graaf

Peter van der Graaf trained as a writing teacher at Creatief Schrijven and has been teaching 'Literary Writing' for ten years. He also works as a communication consultant and copywriter, and has been director of the Dactylus Academy for writing teachers in the Netherlands since July 2023.

At the Nieuwe Veste in Breda, Peter organised the course Writing and Playing Stage Dialogues together with drama teacher Sacha de Heer.

In 2019, he published the poetry collection 'Daarzegger', and with theatre collective Huis aan de Schelde he organised 'Huisarrest' in Bergen op Zoom.

"Just as poetry is often the compacting of language, so playwriting is the most naked writing."
