Session 6

Rob Wittig: Let’s Play Netprov! Tips, Tricks and Theory for Online Roleplay Fiction

This participatory session led by an experienced netprov player will provide hands-on experiences of collaborative digital storytelling. Netprov is online roleplay fiction, and for the past ten years, the leader of this workshop has been developing the form for use in and out of classroom environments. The form offers an opportunity for synchronous or asynchronous writing and critical thinking by small or large groups of authors on electronic platforms. The principles discussed in this workshop apply across numerous social media platforms and for narratives that are variously: comic, dramatic, or activist. Topics will include successful character creation, playing multiple characters, narrative development, and collaborative authorship. Bring a digital device and build characters and narrative with us!
