Transmedia writing overview for if:book Australia

On February 7, 2011 by christy

if:book, the Institute for the Future of the Book, has organisations in London and New York. It now also has one in Queensland, Australia! “if:book Australia promotes new forms of digital literature and explores ways to boost connections between writers and audiences, and is a small think-tank and part of the Queensland Writers Centre”. Recently, I was commissioned to write an essay on transmedia writing. It is the first essay in a series that will run until November this year, and will culminate in an ebook (various formats) freely distributed under Creative Commons licensing. My essay titled “Do You Have a Big Stick?“, an overview of transmedia writing, is now online! 🙂

  • I just read your article “Do You Carry a Big Stick?” Very well done – and very practical for an aspiring Transmedia writer. There seem to be no programs out there that specifically teach Transmedia writing, so I really appreciate the nuggets of knowledge you drop online. If you ever decide to offer an online course, please please please let me know!

  • Thank you Sandy! There are some that talk about transmedia publishing, but yeah, not many about transmedia writing specifically. Andrea Phillips posts about transmedia writing though: http://www.deusexmachinatio.com/ 🙂
