Making #elit!

Our recent agenda:

By now, you are all immersed in your own “elit-making-adventure”. I have enjoyed seeing your early (nascent) ideas evolve into full blown conceptual projects.

In the past couple of weeks, we have spent some time thinking about your story concepts, and also the affordances of different digital tools in an earlier workshop. In a follow-up workshop this week, we focused a bit more on the centrality of interactivity and navigation – a cornerstone concept in what makes electronic literature distinct.

Please keep these concerns front and center as you continue to desing your final project in the next two weeks. Also, here is our remaining #elitclass timeline as we are on the final homestretch now!

Your final #elitclass blog

Your last blog post (due Dec. 16th) is the formal submission of your elit story. Please include the following:

  1. A short description (1-2 paragraphs) introducing your reader to your elit creation. Please see the ELC Vols, 1, 2, or 3 “cover sheet” entry pages for a reference point on the convention of an elit description. 
  2. Please include the link to the final elit story project. 
  3. You may also include a brief reflection (please include this reflection below the project link). Your reflection can include what this project has meant to you. Your reflection can also include and account of some things you discovered along the way, skills or new ideas you learned, things you wish you could have done better, and things you are proud of in your execution of your concept. It is up to you to determine what you would like share to here.

Finally, please remember that our last remaining class will be on Dec. 16th. We will NOT meet on Dec. 9 because Monday classes are scheduled to meet that Wednesday. The evening of Dec. 16th will be a Zoom Party & Final Showcase of your elit pieces. Please send me an email if you intend to share a brief walkthrough of your work. I hope the majority of you will take the opportunity to do this!! I know we will all marvel at the diverse talents and amazing work on display. It will be a true gift to behold.

And your last to-do!

The final thing to do to close out your work for class is to email me your #elitclass portfolio by Friday, Dec. 18th.

See you on 12/16. 🙂
