UK's First Ever Popular Digital Fiction Writing Prize

Have we mentioned that two of our projects, All the Delicate Duplicates and the Beta version of Inanimate Alice: Perpetual Nomads have made the shortlist for this Prize? No? Well you better go visit here to have a look-see [and feel free to sling us - or some of the other fab entries - a vote for the People's Choice Award if you're feeling click-generous].

Dr Bell said: "There is a new generation of readers and writers who see digital media as a dynamic and genuinely immersive means of experiencing fiction. We're trying to capture that within the Reading Digital Fiction project by engaging with established audiences as well as introducing more readers to this form of storytelling.

"The competition is designed to expand digital fiction readership to include a broader segment of the public and is open all writers - from rookies to veterans - and all types of digital fiction."

Dr Skains said: "As a writer of digital fiction, I'm excited to see the public engage more with it, and to see more popular forms emerging from this engagement. Our judges, too, have expressed a keen interest in seeing what digital fiction can do once it hits the mainstream. We're really pleased to have such high profile judges join the panel, from very popular digital fiction writers to Welsh-language researchers in digital media and creativity."
