Read the course outline

Led by computational artist and writer Rob Sherman and a host of specialists in interactive storytelling, you’ll learn the skills and techniques to write works of fiction in a dynamic form, one that allows the reader to choose the direction of the narrative.

Stories are, at their heart, journeys through other worlds in which we are led by the author and the text. But what if we could allow our readers to map their own path? Over five days you’ll learn to build your own stories where readers are in control of their own narrative journey. With our expert guidance you’ll tackle reader choice, learn to build living worlds through your writing and explore the use of image, sound and video as a key part of your work. We’ll also provide the technical support needed to maximise the possibilities offered by Twine, a simple open-source computer program for writing interactive narratives.

We’ll bring you together with leading specialists in a range of fields, and our Digital and Emerging Media curators will introduce you to the heritage of maps as narrative devices, as well as examples of nonlinear and interactive fiction from the British Library’s collections.
