Call for submissions for Multimodal Writing Special Issue of NAWE's Writing in Practice
Tue 10 Dec 2019
NAWE's Writing in Practice aims to explore the nature of the art of writing, highlighting current academic thinking and practice, and reflecting on this with an international outlook. A focus of this special issue is multimodal writing, with guest co-editor Josie Barnard.

Whether directly or indirectly, the digital ‘revolution’ has affected every aspect of the writing and publishing process. Writing – often thought of as primarily text-based – now routinely involves multiple ‘modes’, with photographs, emoji and audio, for example, featuring as integral parts of online narratives.

The explosion of new media technologies may lead a creative writer to experiment with new technologies (perhaps writing Twine poetry or moving into self-publishing). Conversely, it might inspire a revived enthusiasm for using ‘old’ technologies such as pens, pencils, paper. This cfp welcomes submissions in both areas.

A free workshop to support writers wishing to submit to this special Multimodal Writing issue of Writing in Practice is taking place on Friday 14 February 2020 at Middlesex University, London. Details here
