Half of these events take place in Vienna; there is also a strong connection with Carinthia, the region with a culturally prolific Slovenian minority.

In 2018, the Grand Austrian State Prize goes to writer Florjan Lipuš (b. 1937) who has written in Slovene language. In 2011, however, Maja Haderlap (b. 1961), also a Carinthian writer, was bestowed the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize, one of the most important in contemporary German literature, for the novel Angel of Oblivion, which was later turned into a play and produced in Slovenia by the Slovenian National Theatre Drama Ljubljana in 2014. Erwin Koestler has translated several prose works by Ivan Cankar and put into German the graphic novel The Mexicans, published by the Austrian Bahoe Books in 2018.
