Abstract

This paper will explore how the way we read on the screen can create new forms of collaborative writing online. With reference to our ‘Twitter: Practice in Writing’ workshops in London 2014 and Vancouver 2015. As a younger generation move swiftly from print to pixel, reading no longer becomes deliberate and concentrated but rather a scan for information as our eyes follow an F-shaped pattern. Screen-reading encourages rapid patternmaking, provoking action, whereby words are merged with images. From scroll to moveable type, will twitter ‘novels’ give rise to twitter brains? How does it affect what we read and write? Has this change been recognized in the publishing industry?
