"Long-standing tenets of narrative still hold, but if we’re going to live and work in a multiplatform world - where audiences are spread across many narrative forms, not conglomerated together around a dominant - then Writers may need to rethink their processes and even the definition of what they are and what they do…

My own work sees me hopping regularly between forms - from TV and Books, to Interactive and Online. And in juggling those shifts it’s become crucial to recognise what is consistent between them rather than focus on what is different.

Mike Jones says: "In a multiplatform world a Writer cannot be defined by a Medium". I also agree with his comments that in order to write, you have to be able to talk!

"Technology has never changed what a Story is or what audiences expect of it. The commonality of Story between a stageplay, a novel, a film and a video game is much stronger than anything technology can throw at it."
