The First Twitter Fiction Festival
Twitter has announced its first Twitter Fiction Festival, November 28th-December 2nd.
In their words:
“Twitter is a frontier for creative experimentation, and we want to invite authors and creative storytellers around the world to push the bounds of what’s possible with Twitter content. If you’d like to take part in the Twitter Fiction Festival, submit your idea here. Tell us how you are going to explore content formats that already exist on Twitter — short story in Tweets, a Twitter chat, live-tweeting — or, even better, how you’ll create a new one. How will you work with our real-time global platform, where anyone can contribute to your story at any moment?”
We at Code Meet Print would certainly like to take part.
What sort or projects, experiments or stories might be worth exploring for the Festival? Ones that might furthest push the edges of narrative, community or dialogue unique to Twitter and its platform and participants?
The deadline for submissions is November 15th. The Code Meet Print deadline for “brainstorms” on this message board will be Friday, November 9th.
Excited to work with you again!
