(WITS Alliance) Geek to Write: True Tales from the Literary Internet
Thursday, April 8th
12:00 PM to 1:15 PM
Mineral Hall – Hyatt Regency Denver Hotel – Colorado

Geek to Write: True Tales from the Literary Internet. The buzz words of technology—twitter, facebook, blurb, flickr, and YouTube—may sound bizarre to the uninitiated, but web applications offer writers options that were unthinkable even three years ago. On this panel, writers who are also educators will share their experiences in which they have used the new media technology to teach, learn, publish, and create stronger communities. (Robin Reagler, Nandi Comer, Brent Goodman, Amy King, Paul Munden, Jim Walker)
