Alan Bigelow to spin his 'Webyarns' at Medaille

From the Buffalo News:

 

Bigelow is the creator of the digital literature website WEBYARNS (http://www.webyarns.com), a user-friendly archive of some of the Adobe Flash Player based shorter multimedia narratives he has written over the years that are by traditional narrative standards alternately engaging and whimsical, philosophical and self-effacing, haunting and indeterminate, formally playful and sometimes even disarmingly sincere.  If you think digital literature is just for geeks, Bigelow’s WEBYARNS will persuade you otherwise.  They are an emergent form as accessible as the fable  or the 21st century ghost-in-the-machine story.

Bigelow will the featured guest of The Write Thing Reading Series tonight at 7 p.m. for a talk about and digital presentation of some of his more recent WEBYARNS in The Academic Commons area , located on the Fourth Floor of the Main Building, on Medaille College’s city campus, 18 Agassiz Circle in Buffalo.

The event is free and open to the public, and a brief reception will follow the presentation.
