Seth Abramson

  • New Hampshire Institute of Art, French Hall 148 Concord Street Manchester, NH United States (map)

As part of NHIA's Graduate Programs Winter Residency, affiliate faculty member Seth Abramson will be giving a talk about the poetics of digital storytelling.

As we stand at the precipice of the 2020s, digital literacy is now a mandate not just for consumers of digital media but for authors of every stripe. Abramson will talk about how to develop a superlative digital creative writing practice and why it means not just having an aesthetic perspective in your genre(s) of preference but also a complex and idiosyncratic relationship with the media, platforms, and hardware of the digital age. Thinking about short- and long-form storytelling in the digital sphere—how we teach it, how we learn it, and how we grow in it—lets us consider how an inductive "poetics" rather than a deductive "aesthetics" is what enables distinctive, memorable, and finely wrought creative writing in our time.

This event is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.
