This panel asks creative writers to speculate on their own work or that of others and envision the future of the novel. The panel proposes to address the following questions:
· What technologies (such as the internet, videogaming, virtual reality, or artificial intelligence) might shape the form of the novel of the future?
· How might the novel be impacted by future trends and technologies in publishing and the literary marketplace?
· How might the novel form be re-envisioned?
· How do other media, such as videogames, use narrative in novelistic modalities?
The panel invites a wide range of interpretations of this topic and encourages creative work
