It's the YouTube of Text! Intro to Wattpad | Transmedia 101 Oct. 2. DON"T MISS IT! | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Maria Cootauco of Wattpad presents the world's largest community for discovering and sharing stories and how Wattpad partners with transmedia storytellers.

 

Recently dubbed the “Youtube of Text”, Wattpad can’t seem to keep out of the news as of late with recent announcements of a $17.3 injection of cash investment and famed writer Margaret Atwood joining the world’s largest community for discovering and sharing stories.

 

Everyday millions of people use Wattpad to read great fiction or share their own creative writing on the web and across all mobile devices. Wattpad is the only place that offers a mobile, social, eReading experience. So far over 5 million stories have been uploaded by our community and another 500,000 are being added each month.

 

Come see why seasoned authors are now flocking to Wattpad for audience development, how early adopters have created exciting new emergent narrative forms, and how seasoned cross-platform producers have partnered with Wattpad for exciting transmedia projects. Intro to Wattpad will take place Oct 2, 7-9 pm at our regular host location: InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Center.

 

Tickets are $5 cash at the door. Please RVSP on our Transmedia 101 meetup.com page.

Laura Sterrit: " A transmedia campaign is only as good as its co-creators. Many originators—filmmakers, authors, musicians—are excellent at their art form, understanding how to use the medium to its best potential. Instead of forcing them to fumble through new and unknown platforms, it is much better to partner with creators who hold an expertise in those areas" ...

Site for Forthcoming Apps announced by Bookseller UK

The book apps market is evolving and maturing, and as the tablet market grows, opportunities for successful publishing in this area will increase. At The Bookseller we are now going to begin exploring how we can better reflect the range of activity in this sector. In the past we have reviewed apps, particularly the bigger launches, but what now seems more useful would be to compile a forthcoming apps release column. The aim is to provide our audience with a regular listing of what is coming out, and when, so we can all be better informed about this market. We can only do this in the old fashioned way however, by publishers supplying us with advance information ahead of release. We’d like notice of apps (and enhanced e-books), to be published on iOS or Android devices. I am aware that publication dates are a moveable item, so we'll be asking for a notional publication date (we'll aim to work a week in advance, though we may also highlight apps whose publication date is further away, if we have that information). Felicity Wood at The Bookseller will compile the listing each week, and you can email her or me with your views on how we should present this material, if you wish. The email address to begin sending advance information to is apps@bookseller.co.uk
