E-Lit Camp: Write, Code, Create
E-Lit Camp is an informal weekend gathering for writers, artists, and programmers currently involved or interested in electronic literature. Work on your projects, give a presentation, collaborate, and learn from others.
If you're a writer, artist, journalist, coder, or some combination of the above, E-Lit camp is for you. Have a project? Bring it. Don't have one? Bring your skills and creativity. Fiction is fab; documentary is cool. Bring your camera, laptop, projector, ideas, and anything else you need to be creative. Bring electronic works, Interactive Fictions, and videogames that you like, so we can try them out!
This is an Unconference, loosely based on BarCamp and RailsCamp. Think of it as a weekend-long writers colony for electronic literature. If you have something to share, bring it along; there's no approval process.
One evening, some of us are hoping to see "Sleep No More", a hyperdrama at the American Repertory Theatre.
Time: Friday afternoon, 11 December, to Sunday night, 13 December.
Location: Eastgate Systems, Watertown Mass.
Cost: $50 for supplies and snacks. Theater tickets extra.
