AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Is digital fiction worthy of serious consideration as a literary text and does it have a place in the English classroom, particularly in light of the establishment of a stand-alone Literature subject as part of the Years 11-12 English program in the Australian Curriculum? To answer these questions this paper briefly looks at the development and definitions of digital fiction, examines a number of current digital narrative formats, considers narratological analyses of two digital texts that accord with literary practice but also account for the affordances of the digital environment and finally provides a snapshot of the author's professional practice in this area.'
