The newsletter as a genre


A talk with the assistant professor and PhD at University of Southern Denmark, Toke Riis Ebbesen, on digital literature and the development of the newsletter as a genre.
The talk will explore the technical formats: html, epub, text, powerpoint, etc., and the challenges that emerge when combining these formats with narrative and poetic practises.

The educational platform and incubator, Center for Art & Tech, CATCH, and Elsinore Library will lead the development of a new nationwide newsletter. The goal is to develop a new literary format that will inspire younger readers across the country to be interested in new talented authors. In the new newsletter, selected authors will reflect on current events in a hybrid format, where the old meets the new ones.

The project is supported by funds from the Development Fund for Public Libraries and Educational Learning Center.

 Note: The talk will be in Danish
