Project Abstract
Films offer us a romantic view of writers' lives. Forget hard graft: writers live, love and drink to excess, then occasionally transcribe their adventures in a brief montage. Unrealistic, of course, but technology is changing the writer's life with the new predominance of ebooks and the instant access of the internet. Writing was once a solitary profession, but now writers can collaborate and communicate with each other and with their readers. How are instantaneous communication and elastic textual formats changing the ways we write and read? What does it mean to be a writer in the 21st century? Will the traditional print hierarchy and genre structure dissolve or will new categories develop?
