Documents

Digital media offers specific affordances to the fiction author, including multimodality, non- and poly-linear structures, and interactivity. Current studies focus on reader response and literacy; little is understood about how authors compose and conceive digital fiction. This ethnographic study of undergraduate writers composing digital and prose fiction expands the first author’s practice-based research on digital composition, which found that digital composition has significant effects on writer cognition, approach to story, and narrative elements.
