What's your advice for writer's block?” This is a question that I get in almost every writing class that I teach, and so as is required by law, I start my remarks by saying that I don't believe in writer's block.

Podcasting: Storytelling for the 21st Century – Pros, Cons, Examples and Best Practices | Litteris | Scoop.it

"The human voice can convey much more meaning through tone and inflection than the printed word ever can. It’s why millions of Americans sat, fixated, during the Golden Age of Radio – listening to everything from adventure, comedy and drama to classical music concerts, news and farm reports."

Brave New World: Digital Warming: Can We Avoid the Destruction of the Physical Book Habitat?

Brave New World: Digital Warming: Can We Avoid the Destruction of the Physical Book Habitat? | Litteris | Scoop.it

So why do we continue today to simply take the physical content and pour it into a digital container and think that that is it and its down to social media and discovery? Today’s book is born from the economical print model and although it can vary significantly between genre, within them it is often predictable. The trade novel is often 70,000 words and 256 pages and this is because this optimises the print economics and authors are now trained to produce it. So making a digital copy of the physical book could be a short term fix and a long term nightmare should we be looking to create digital value by adding more stuff, or may we may create more value by abridging it and creating less digital content? The question of which comes first the physical or the digital is also an interesting one. In merely pouring the physical content into the digital container are we not creating our own greenhouse effect?

Nunca houve um momento mais emocionante para a indústria - desde a época de Gutenberg..

A publicação está bem viva à medida que avançamos em 2014 e além. De fato, as plataformas digitais estão em franca evolução, mais fortes do que nunca. O twitter se tornou uma fonte líder mundial para as notícias em tempo real, informações e entretenimento, e milhões de usuários estão twittando links para conteúdo em 140-caracteres ou menos. As comunidades online estão se formando em torno de plataformas de publicações digitais, proporcionando às pessoas ao redor do mundo que compartilham interesses comuns um lugar para se reúnirem para ler e criar conteúdo de seu interessse. Anunciantes estão reconhecendo o valor que a publicação digital oferece: Acesso aos leitores com presença e os interesses mensuráveis.

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You | Litteris | Scoop.it

"When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"

A festival still steeped in the established art of cinema, the question inevitably arises: Will any of these experiments in storytelling transcend the category of “first word art” and become the dominant forms of tomorrow? Or are they merely timely novelties whose relevance is tied up with the technologies that enable them?
