Publishing on the Feed: social media as a publishing platform


This event has already finished!

Is a status update part of a real-time memoir? Is a tweet really just a form of free verse? When it comes to getting a work of microfiction into the world, is distributing it on a social network the best way to receive immediate feedback and place it before the readers that matter most? Could your Facebook Newsfeed function as an algorithmically-generated literary journal? Join digital microfictioner Patrick Lenton and poet Autumn Royal for a discussion on what happens when literature finds its way onto your social media stream.
