2 Days. One Novel. 100s of Writers.

The Digital Writing Makerthon is a unique creative, artistic, multimedia attempt to make a text that is more than a text -- what we're calling a "makertext." Hundreds of collaborators will work together to tell a single story using words, sound, video, hyperlinks, code, tweets, and more, in just 48 hours.

We begin Friday, November 15 at 11:59pm EST and end November 17 at 11:59pm EST. Visit World Time Buddy to find out what time we'll be working in your time zone. Join the discussion on Twitter with #readmake. Follow @Jessifer and @slamteacher, read the rallying cry, and help spread the word.

Registering is not necessary, but you can sign up here to get more info. about this and other upcoming read{make} events
