Excerpt from Show

Mia Zamora, director of the Kean University Writing Project and co-founder of #NetNarr, on the guiding ideas of #NetNarr:

I think we're all very interested in the ways storytelling has been transformed in the digital age, in the 21st century with the digital tools that we have now at our fingertips, I think we're interested in the effect that networks have on telling stories, and I think we're interested in collaborative writing, and what happens when we start to write in social contexts."
