Working Title: The Publishing Industry in the Digital Fiction Ecosystem

Topic: My research looks at the position of the publishing industry in the emerging field of digital fiction. I am examining the history and current state of legacy publishers’ engagement with digital technology as a creative tool, and comparing this to other major sectors in the field (electronic literature, videogames and fan fiction). By doing so I hope to gain an understanding of where the publishing industry can best situate itself in this area of literary production.

Research interests: electronic literature; digital publishing; publishing studies; creative communities; online publishing; social media; videogames; fan fiction.

Supervisors:
