Creative Web Writing published by A & C Black in 2002, £11.99
Foreword by Terry Pratchett
The future of culture and
communications lies on the Internet and yet creative culture tends to ignore
it. In Creative Web WritingJane Dorner examines the range of creative writing skills that new
media formats require.
The book looks at interactivity and
flexible text, as well as the nuts and bolts of styling for screen reading. A
number of creative genres are examined, including: writing as installation,
poetry, fantasy, avant pop, interactive broadcasting, writing for children and
‘blogging’, which she sees as the 21st century equivalent of
the 10th century pillow book. The author also looks at the
varieties of e-books and the new breed of e-publishers.
