The Future of Writing

Went to De Montford University workshop
The death of the book has been falsely foretold many times; in this age of proliferating media it is clear that the book will not disappear but will have to fight for its place. What are the challenges for writers today? What does the new media have to offer writers? And, vitally, what does the new media have to offer readers? Seminar featuring Kate Pullinger , Sue Thomas (Professor of New Media at De Montfort University), Christina Patterson (Deputy Literary Editor of The Independent) and Michael Powell, (Course Leader for Game Art, De Montfort University). Chaired by Professor Andy Hugill, (De Montfort University, Music Technology).

Kate Pullinger was talking about her on line story Inanimate Alice, which is well worth looking at
