 Workshop: The Future of the Book as a Knowledge System

Note: This workshop will be built around 3 small-group writing “sprints” during which you will be asked to write a short piece about some aspect of the future of reading, writing and publishing. You will work together with your group to define topics and themes, and there will be ample time for brainstorming, discussion and feedback in your group and across different groups. The final outcome for the conference will be a digital book that will come together publicly in real-time at http://sprintbeyondthebook.com
