Tools of Change for Publishing Conference #3 Alison Norrington

Alison%20Norrington%20TOC2008.JPGAlison Norrington, along with Jo Howard and Toni le Busque, is one of the first graduates of the Online MA in Creative Writing and New Media so I was proud to see her present her dissertation project Sophie Staying Single at Tools of Change. Alison has a fluent understanding of how social networks can be used to create fiction across a range of platforms and her talk was lively and refreshing, especially when she shared some of the responses her character Sophie had received from readers. The presentation got a great response and attracted the interested attention of several publishers. It was very encouraging to see one of our very first students do so well in such a competitive industry environment.
Update: Alison's presentation is now online here.
