Leeds Big Bookend
We invited #foundfiction to be part of the Northern Short Story Festival. They brought along a writing desk where passers-by were encouraged to co-write a short story by adding one line at a time. Around 20 participants got involved, and the story they created was then tweeted out line by line. It was a great use of social media and helped us promote the festival. #foundfiction could drive publicity for any festival and get participation at any major event. What makes it stand out as a concept is the potential for involving everyone who likes reading and/or writing. Also the fact it’s global. Very few projects have the ability to span the world.
