Futurewrite at the Arvon Centre, UK – 17-22 November 2008


Collaborate on scripting a piece of new media literature – interactive, multimedia, transliterate – and a riveting read. We’ll look at blogs, podcasts, games and animations, see the best of what’s creative on the web, clear our heads of technophobia and make something special together.
