Frankenletter with Digital Writers’ Festival
In partnership with the Digital Writers’ Festival, Voiceworks brings you an exclusive Tinyletter for one week only! To celebrate the launch of Voiceworks’ new online platform, as well as the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s seminal Gothic horror tale Frankenstein, we explore the hybrid and monstrous nature of digital media. Each day during the Digital Writers’ Festival, a new piece of digital writing will be delivered to your inbox along with a behind-the-scenes look at how the piece was created.
With Kat Capel, Rory Green, Madison Griffiths, Peo Michie, Eda Gunaydin, Mitch Tomas Cave, Jamie Marina Lau and Mira Schlosberg.
Presented in partnership with Express Media.
