Creative Writing and New Media Archive This website contains online lectures delivered as part of the MA in Creative Writing and New Media at De Montfort University from 2006-2010. Visiting lectures, delivered online by leading practitioners across the world, were an integral part of the course. Teaching via video, Skype, chatrooms, slideshows, websites and plain old-fashioned discussion boards, the speakers outline the realities of working in new media; detail the rigorous creative and theoretical challenges, and celebrate the sheer pleasure of breaking new artistic ground in this dynamic medium.
Transliteracy Research Group At 3Ts 2013: Transliteracy from Cradle to Career in Saratoga Springs this week I learned some new things about transliteracy. 1. In What I Want, When I Want to Watch It: Brief Thoughts on Television Literacy in the Streaming World with Hollie Miller & Michele Forte, Hollie aka @theotherinside showed us a feature on Hulu Plus which allows you to choose between adverts. That means that when the ads come on - as they invariably do - if you don't like the one they're showing, you can choose a different ad from several on offer. Very interesting ad-based literacy - I've never been asked to consciously choose my own ads before, even though I know I'm already trading off that information on many of my social media platforms.

Here are my slides from 3Ts 2013: Transliteracy from Cradle to Career, held at Empire State College in Saratoga Springs on 15 March 2013. Thanks to Tom Mackey and Michele Forte and their colleagues for a very stimulating and enjoyable event. We talked about many things in the course of the day and I tried to keep a note of all the links I needed to pass on. Here, in no particular order, are the items I think I promised to share. Do contact me if I missed anything. Sue Thomas
