PROJECT: The Generative Literature Project

Hybrid Pedagogy Publishing introduced the Generative Literature Project, “which is producing a crowdsourced, gamified digital novel about a murder.” The post also helps define the genre:

…a specific form of literature which challenges some aspects of classical literature.  Frequently associated with the power of the machine (read computer), generative literature is often understood as the production of continuously changing literary texts by means of some set of rules and/or the use of algorithms.

Hybrid Pedagogy publishing will share dispatches from their experiment with this emerging genre.
