Twine: A Critical and Creative Companion to Teaching with Twine proposes
to feature multiple voices of users and teachers of the digital
storytelling platform Twine ( across creative, gaming,
scholarly, pedagogical, and literary contexts. We seek to include an
expansive pedagogical community inside and outside of university spaces
that engage deeply with the possibilities that Twine offers for creative
and critical expression. We invite short abstracts of up to 300 words and
short biographies of up to 100 words by Friday, October 29, 2021.

This collection serves as a proposed companion to Twining
( (2020) by Anastasia
Salter and Stuart Moulthrop, which has provided an invaluable perspective
on one of the longest standing hypertext literature platforms in use today.
EnTwine looks to a broader community of teachers, researchers, gamers, and
practitioners of Twine. It proposes to gather theorizations, case studies,
and how-to guides from gaming, media studies, digital humanities, critical
code studies, digital writing, literary platform studies, composition
studies, and more. This collection will feature an expansive pedagogical
community that engages deeply with the possibilities that Twine offers for
teaching and community building.

Contributions may include, but are not limited to:-Twine in Universities, GLAM institutions, STEAM;

   -Learning communities inside and outside the College/University;
   -Artist communities;
   -Collaboration and community building;
   -Digital storytelling and community building;
   -Transcultural and multicultural approaches;
   -Non-English and multilingual practices and works;
   -Digital literacies and multiliteracies;
   -Teaching and research;
   -Teaching and art/creativity;
   -Hands-on and experiential learning;
   -Accessibility and inclusion;
   -Archives, preservation, and knowledge sustainability.

For selected abstracts, eventual contributions should be 4000 words or the
equivalent for creative works. The collection will be proposed to Amherst
College Press, which uses the open-source and open-access publishing
platform, Fulcrum (, and publishes in both print
and open-access digital instances.

We encourage submissions from authors of underrepresented genders. This
includes cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and those
who are otherwise marginalized. We also encourage submissions from visible
minorities, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+
persons. We are especially interested in submissions that include
multimedia materials, and we welcome discussion about how to support
submissions that focus on non-English works.

Please send questions and submissions to Emily Christina Murphy and Lai-Tze
