How Does this Work?

Digital Writing Month is a deceptively easy event to enjoy. On first glance, DigiWriMo may look like a course. But it may also look like a blog. Or a MOOC. Or someone’s twisted idea of a hobby. But the truth is that DigiWriMo is set up as a loosely structured creative community assembled to support experimentation, exploration, and generally raucous fun in digital media.

To get started, take a look at the Roster. This open document is where participants can record their project goals for the month. If you don’t have a project, this is a good place to get some ideas. If you do have one, it’s a good way to find people you may want to connect with throughout the month.

Projects can work with digital text, images/video, and sound. You can choose to locate your work in one of these media, or to weave around in all of them. If you have need of special support, you can reach out to one of the three DigiWriMo hosts:

  • Maha Bali (@Bali_Maha)
  • Sarah Honeychurch (@NomadWarMachine)
  • Kevin Hodgson (@Dogtrax)

Next, join the fray! You’ll find folks chatting about Digital Writing Month using the hashtag #digiwrimo on Twitter, in our Google Community and on our Facebook page. We’ll also be posting weekly writing prompts, blog posts, and special weekend writing challenges.

Digital Writing Month may be hosted by¬†Hybrid Pedagogy, but it’s really all yours to do with as you please. Your tools: anything and¬†everything digital. Your limit: the sky!

  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the
    screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
