As part of NHIA's Graduate Programs Winter Residency, affiliate faculty member Seth Abramson will be giving a talk about the poetics of digital storytelling.
As we stand at the precipice of the 2020s, digital literacy is now a mandate not just for consumers of digital media but for authors of every stripe. Abramson will talk about how to develop a superlative digital creative writing practice and why it means not just having an aesthetic perspective in your genre(s) of preference but also a complex and idiosyncratic relationship with the media, platforms, and hardware of the digital age. Thinking about short- and long-form storytelling in the digital sphere—how we teach it, how we learn it, and how we grow in it—lets us consider how an inductive "poetics" rather than a deductive "aesthetics" is what enables distinctive, memorable, and finely wrought creative writing in our time.
This event is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.
