NYPL Labs: The Twitter Fiction Festival Live Event


Join a gathering of authors and readers of the first-ever Twitter Fiction Festival (#twitterfiction) for a live event of tweeting and storytelling. Experience literary experiments that challenge the boundaries of storytelling.

Hosted by The New York Public Library, Twitter, The Brown Institute for Media Innovation, and Plympton.

The Twitter Fiction Festival is running worldwide from November 28 to December 2, 2012, with participants selected by a distinguished panel of judges.

NYPL Labs is an experimental design and technology unit creating interactive experiences around research library collections and data. Based at NYPL's flagship branch on 42nd Street, Labs operates as an in-house startup, working closely with curators to develop projects that push the envelope of library practice, engage new audiences through user collaboration and crowdsourcing, and accelerate the flow of cultural heritage content, data and code into the digital commons.
