HUCO Student Shortlisted for New Media Writing Prize
Congratulations to HUCO's first year student, Dan Cockcroft, on being short-listed for this year's New Media Writing Prize (NMWP) for his Twine game, MetaQuest.
The NMWP, which is awarded every year and run out of Bournemouth University (UK), is one of the most important international awards for creators of electronic literature. Even being short-listed is a huge success and an acknowledgement of exceptional writerly/creative talent and technological prowess. Incidentally, this year's main prize category winner is Canadian-born e-poet JR Carpenter, and her hybrid print and web-based work, "The Gathering Cloud."
