Creating Conversation: Composing in the Digital Age | NWP Digital Is | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy's insight:

"One of the many potentials of the shifts in envisioning writing in multimodal spaces is the chance for new conversations -- for stretching out thinking beyond your own physical space and joining in discussions about the changes now underfoot. During November 2012's Digital Writing Month, educators and writers and others from across many teaching levels and learning domains -- from public schools to college universities and beyond -- were engaged in a deep exploration of digital tools and ideas, and many participants shared reflective practice on what those digital choices were doing to their conceptions of writing."

Digital writing can only persist if it is shifted between media as technology shifts. There is a beauty in this ephemerality and changeability.

Digital Writing Month: Game off/Game on

Digital Writing Month: Game off/Game on | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

This really is what happened to me with my video game project for Digital Writing Month. I had begun to create a game in which I was seeking to represent some of my ideas around digital writing. I was two and a half levels into the game design when I realized: this is not working. If you have never dipped your toes into game design, the use of symbolism is important, and here, as I tried to “represent” digital writing within a video game format, it just fell apart on me.

Kristin Miller Woodward: Code:Poem

Kristin Miller Woodward: Code:Poem | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

I have been lurking around DigiWriMo. Finally jumped into the Code:Poem prompt today. At first, I was fascinated by the prospect of spending a few minutes to learn some Java commands. (That’s what I’ll call them.) I sailed through the first several exercises and started thinking about my career options as a “Coder”, but as I worked my way into the harder tasks, I forgot what I learned in the first levels and could not put together compound strings, even with hints. But, I was following the steps of the prompt to work through at least part of the tutorial. I would need to repeat the tutorial *and* take notes to learn the full commands. After abandoning Code Academy (for today) I peaked at the sample code poems and was fascinated by the code {poem} project. The idea of communicating poetic style in code. Illuminating not obscuring and transcending a new medium with poetry. I hear the power of visual media to convey ideas and transform our communication style. But the code poems are entirely separate from that phenomenon in that they build on the power of allusion, alliteration, metaphor with a new, evolved form and function that codes voice into a living text.

I jumped on board with the Digital Writing Month because the idea of National Novel Writing Month intimidated me and yet, I wanted a challenge that might push me in few different directions as a writer. A challenge that matched writing with technology, and deeper reflective stances, was right up my alley. I knew right from the start that I would not be counting words, since the 50,000 words of Digital Writing made no sense, particularly if I was going to be making comics, and videos, and other media compositions in which words were relatively meaningless. I still find it odd that folks are sharing their counts as they reflect on the work they did during the month. But I suppose we are a culture that is goal-orientated, and words are something one can tally up.

Digital Writing Month Fail? | Inside Higher Ed | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

It’s already the end of the month. I came nowhere near completing my goal of 50,000 digital words, but more troubling, I didn’t manage to write anything for either of my MLA presentations. Instead I spent a lot of time this month applying for jobs, caring for sick kids and spouse and self, and grading (oh, the grading!). Not to mention the 2.5 hours spent filling out paperwork for immigration. Can YOU list the exact addresses (and dates) of everywhere you’ve lived since you were 16?

And actually, it’s pretty fascinating to see how your words become waves when you are using audio files in a system like Audacity. The peaks and valleys – the gaps of silence – all remind you that our voice is really nothing more than sounds on the audio spectrum.

Digiwrimo Challenge: Code Poems | Sad Iron

Digiwrimo Challenge: Code Poems | Sad Iron | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

Code poems are some­thing I don’t know much about, but as a cre­ative writ­ing teacher I prob­a­bly should. I’ve been think­ing for awhile about how sub­ver­sive code poems are and can be, espe­cially if the audi­ence doesn’t know they’re read­ing a code poem—only the most intu­itive reader would know to “show source” and expose the work in full, rather than the mere semi­otics of sur­face. Would this be too exclu­sive? No. As Sean Michael Mor­ris reminded me the other evening, a writer should have high expec­ta­tions of their audi­ence. What also inter­ests me about code is its inef­fa­ble nature—code is per­for­ma­tive; it is what it does, so any HTML tag, for exam­ple, is a mere descrip­tion of an action, rather than a “word” in the com­mon sense of what we know words to be. I have a new book of poetry com­ing out in Feb­ru­ary titled </war>, and the pri­mary rea­son I chose this title was it’s unspeak­able (and often unrep­re­sentable) form—we could say “end war” or “close war” or any num­ber of other vari­a­tions, but still not cap­ture the essence of the per­for­mance (which is gen­er­ally why we fail so much as a soci­ety when talk­ing about war).
