For the month of February 2017, we will be conducting virtual visits with practitioners of the art of Networked Narratives, visiting them in the places where they do their craft.

This are designed as conversations, not lectures or presentations, so come prepared with questions

These will be happen on Mondays at 1pm EST via Google Hangouts and anyone can watch the stream live or view the archive later. Mia Zamora and Alan Levine will be aboard along with 2-3 Kean University students. We will open up remaining slots to open participants via a signup form (if there are more signups than spots, we will have to spin a random will of selection). Anyone watching live is welcome to chime in questions or comments in twitter via our #netnarr tag.

On Wednesday following the visits, the Kean University students will lead a twitter chat discussion where we will link the questions to specific moments in the archive. There will be creative assignments each week that relate to the topic.
