This Fall, Purple Blurb, a new reading series for digital writing, is beginning in Cambridge at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The series is sponsored by the MIT programs in Writing and Humanistic Studies and Comparative Media Studies along with local arts organization Turbulence and the Electronic Literature Organization. The series features readings and presentations by digital writers of all sorts – poets, fiction writers, writers of nonfiction and criticism, and others engaged in language, narrative, and letters on the computer. The readings will start at 6pm at MIT in 14NÃ¢â‚¬â€œ233 (second floor of building 14, in the wing that is across the courtyard from the Hayden Library). A flyer for the series lists the four events for this Fall, which are presentations by:
Robert Kendall – Clues, Faith, Logozoa, Pieces
Vika Zafrin – RolandHT, WordsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ End
Barbara Barry – Mindful Documentary, One Degree Narratives
Andrew Plotkin – Shade, So Far, The Dreamhold, Delightful Wallpaper
