Next Stage: Tear It Up: How to Write a Digital Novel

Mobile devices—particularly tablets—present exciting opportunities to create new forms of the novel. How can we take this great storytelling form from the familiar container of the book to the open frontier of the touch screen?

In this presentation, speakers Andrew Lewellen, Senior Content Strategist at HUGE; Matt Kennedy, President of 1K Studios; Samantha Gorman, professor of performance studies and digital literature at RISD; and artist Danny Cannizzaro will discuss how writers, designers and developers can work together to combine traditional fictional elements, media, and interaction design to create forms of the novel that are both innovate and intuitive.
