Digital Fiction: From the Page to the Screen

  • Kate Pullinger
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 7)


In this essay Pullinger will discuss writing across media, in particular, print and digital fiction. For Pullinger the divide between the digital and print worlds is artificial; she has always worked across many forms. However, there are very few established fiction writers who work in both print and digital, in terms of creating born-digital fiction projects like Pullinger and Joseph’s ‘Inanimate Alice’. Many book writers and publishers remain mired in decade-old arguments and anxieties about the future of the book, some of which are deadends (the death of the book) and some of which are very important (the future of copyright). Although Pullinger participates in discussions of these issues, her primary interest is in making a living from creating work whether it is digital or print.
