The Reading Digital Fiction project has two core aims. Primarily, as keen readers of digital fiction, we want to introduce more readers to digital fiction. To achieve that aim, we are organising various public events including workshops, exhibitions, and writing competitions to introduce people to this exciting new form of literature. Secondly, as cognitive stylisticians, we are interested in how readers process particular linguistic and multimodal features within digital fiction. We are therefore running several reader-response studies, collecting data from readers in order to understand how digital literary reading works cognitively.

The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (Funding Ref: AH/K004174/1).
