DigiWriMo: An Interview with the Founders
Okay, cool. Maybe I’ll do this one this year. I really don’t have time for NaNoWriMo this year.
This year, Jesse Stommel and Sean Michael Morris of Marylhurt University conceived of Digital Writing Month to run concurrently with—and complementary to—NaNoWriMo. They are offering DigiWriMo to their students and would-be students, as well as any other writers who wish to join, as a way to acquaint themselves with the oddity and magic of digital writing.
The word-count goal is the same as that of NaNoWriMo, but the delivery of those words is entirely different. Rather than asking people to write novels, they’re encouraging them to create texts of many kinds, all located somehow upon, within, and in relationship with the web.
What inspired you to start Digital Writing Month?
