, and others when we will discuss Digital Writing Month (#digiwrimo).
Held in November, Digital Writing Month is a (somewhat) insane month-long writing challenge, a wild ride through the world of digital writing, wherein those daring enough to participate wield keyboard and cursor to create digital projects of text, image, and/or sound in the thirty days of November. Modeled after the inspirational National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), DigiWriMo asks writers to be creative not just with their words, but also with other digital media —image, video, and sound — and with what those media can do. We will work to redefine “writing” in the digital, and not confine it only to words, but open up the possibilities of narrative and exposition within multimedia and multimodal projects. Where that “writing” resides, what it looks like, how it interacts with other works and authors, is entirely up to the wild imaginings of each DigiWriMo participant.
Writers may choose to collaborate with one another on a long piece, like a novel or collection. They may conspire, co-author, cooperate, collude, or even compete… Blog posts, Twitter essays, podcasts, music videos, wiki novels, a tv pilot co-authored in a Google Doc, slideshows, academic articles, massively co-authored poems, songs, and novels are all potential ways to cross the finish line.
The point is to experiment, to push our boundaries and create, and to locate our creations on the web, in relationship with other creations, other words and other authors. You do it your way, whatever way that is, and we’ll provide the applause.
