Digital Fiction in Aberystwyth

We are pleased to announce two free workshops on Reading and Writing Digital Fiction. They will take place in the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, on 16 and 17 June 2016. Dr. Lyle Skains, lecturer in writing at the School of Creative Studies and Media, University of Bangor, and editor of the Electronic Literature Directory, will lead the workshops.

If you are a writer who is interested in experimenting with new forms of narrative in online spaces, then this workshop is for you. Writers will be introduced to reading digital fiction, narratives that are created and read on digital devices. We will examine and discuss several works of digital fiction; the workshop leader will then guide you through the practical considerations of designing stories for digital platforms.

We will design narratives and create them in dedicated “storygame” platform Twine, a free and easy-to-use software that can create interactive stories regardless of your technological expertise.

Registration is free, but places are limited. Please book your place here: Thursday, 16 June or Friday 17 June.
