Born in 1967 in Salzgitter, Porombka studied German and later Literature Studies with a specialism in new media and the literary industry. He has been a hypertext expert, slammer, cultural journalist and project-maker. These days he is an experimental cultural academic and productive contemporary observer, who is particularly interested in the forms and formats of what is “next”. Since 2013 he has done research in and taught text theory and text layout at the UdK (Berlin University of the Arts). He previously taught at the University of Hildesheim, where he set up a university-wide quality management, as well as developing and directing the Creative Writing, Cultural Journalism and Literary Writing study programmes. Since then, the central task of his work has been to transform the old, book-based concepts of literary, essayistic and journalistic productivity and creativity, and to adjust the new – and primarily, the “next” – cultures of writing.
