Papyrus to Pixels
We love to talk about story here on Litopia After Dark – and in particular, the impact that new media is having on its development, production and consumption. Are we entering a Promised Land full of storytelling richness, fuelled by ubiquitous multimedia devices – or is this merely the beginning of a new Dark Age, when story – and therefore authors – are devalued?
Someone who’s taken the bull by the horns on this issue is Andrea Buchanan, no stranger to listeners of Litopia After Dark, whose new work Gift is a feast of storytelling sumptuousness – including not just words, but music and songs, characters’ diaries and comics, too. Is this the way of the future? Listen, and decide for yourself!
With Litopian and special guest Geoff North, presented by Peter Cox with Dave Bartram and featuring the immortal Ali Gardiner in the chat room.
