This is an experimental workshop for all writers who want to explore and bring new or unused skills into their writing practice using digital platforms. The course is aimed at creative writers at all levels who want to stretch their imagination and creativity using digital tools
Novelist Kate Pullinger will lead the course. She writes for both print and digital platforms and her prize-winning digital fiction projects have reached audiences around the world. In 2009 her novel The Mistress of Nothing won the Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction, one of Canada¹s most prestigious prizes.
Workshop Outline: The workshop will focus on thinking about new ways to tell stories. You will discuss the skills you have to offer and look at ways of collaborating on the day, as well as exploring opportunities for future collaborations. During the day you will create two stories in different forms.
Participants are asked to bring along a camera, video, audio recorder or laptop, but if you don’t have those tools that’s OK too.
