The Generative Literature Project
Call for Participation:
Generative Literature Project
The Generative Literature Project is calling for the participation of 10-12 Creative Writing faculty from campuses across the United States to participate in the creation of a transmedia generative digital novel.
This project will take place during Fall Semester 2014, and will involve students and faculty in writing a minimum of one class assignment, one faculty character sketch, and a collaborative analysis of the main character's motive and alibi. (See Sample Lesson Timeline for more information: http://goo.gl/k9QyAZ).
Students and faculty may also wish to create artifacts via social media and blogging, and participate in project "Tweet-Ups" and Google Hangouts as the project progresses. All project writing will be completed by November 1, 2014.
Authors will retain rights to their piece, but must agree to publish it under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Share-Alike license as part of the project narrative. We will also require a Memorandum of Understanding (http://goo.gl/tUQRRs) between our project and the participating faculty member that provides a clear understanding of the relationship between Hybrid Pedagogy and the faculty member so that there are no surprises down the line.
We anticipate a robust response to this call, so if you are interested in participating, please let us know as soon as possible. Deadline for Application: June 17, 2014
