Interactive Narratives: Creating the Future of Literature

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Literature need no longer be defined and confined by the objects that contain it—books and magazines and pages. New Media technologies like Augmented Reality, Transmedia Storytelling, and Interactive Stories offer new ways for narratives to be created and experienced. How can writers and developers work together to create new forms of literature? Experts from each discipline who are committed to this vision will talk about examples of this type of work and discuss the opportunities in the emerging field.
