Have you heard that November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? If you want to participate in a collaborative, tech-focused writing project check out this Digital Writing Month (DigiWriMo) project: the Digital Writing Makerthon. The Digital Writing Makerthon, sponsored by UW-Madison Continuing Studies, is a “unique creative, artistic, multimedia attempt to make a text that is more than a text — what we’re calling a “makertext.” Hundreds of collaborators will work together to tell a single story using words, sound, video, hyperlinks, code, tweets, and more, in just 48 hours.”
The fun starts at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, 15 November and lasts for two days. You can participate by signing up at www.readmake.com and following @Jessifer, @slamteacher, and #readmake on Twitter.
