What will happen to the story in this millenium? What’s over the hill for writers? How can you take your narrative ideas into a cross platform environment? And how can you make a living at it?  Jennifer Wilson, Therese Fingleton, and  Christy Dena have collaborated on a magnificent project to answer and inspire this generation’s professional creative writers.

The writer’s guide was developed through the Australia Council’s Story of the Future project to explore the craft and business of writing in the digital era. It includes case studies from Australia’s rising generation of poets, novelists, screenwriters, games writers and producers who are embracing new media and contains audio and video content from seminars and workshops, as well as extensive references to resources in Australia and beyond.

This is an oustanding idea. Love to take a look at it, but….

268 pages sounds like way more than is necessary to me. Especially as a pdf book.

I could be wrong, but I reckon if Jack Kerouac was writing On The Road today he’d do it via a blog. With occasion bursts of inspiration sent from his mobile phone via Twitter.

I doubt he’d need an overly long academic tome to help him get started.

Then again, WTF would I know!?
