The creative writing incubator Paper Nations has launched a new digital writing commission to support writers in the South West (Wiltshire, Somerset and Gloucestershire). Please find some brief information below and more detailed info attached.
Beyond the Book: Calling Digital Writers
Beyond the Book is a new scheme to develop innovative models for writing and publication, promoting dialogue between writers, technologists and publishers. We will support three writers with a connection to Somerset, Gloucestershire, or Wiltshire over six months to experiment with the possibilities of telling stories using a smartphone.
We’ll offer £5000 and support to develop text-based digital projects and the opportunity to reach local, national, and international audiences.
Beyond the Book is led by writer, Professor Kate Pullinger, and delivered by Paper Nations. Based at Bath Spa University, the Paper Nations team has partnered with a panel of experts who want to see work that is innovative, experimental, and shows a curiosity about the potential of smartphones.
The deadline for applications is 1st September 2019.
