Twitter Fiction Festival Attracts Big Authors

By Dianna Dilworth 

Margaret Atwood, Jackie Collins, Lemony Snicket and Chuck Wendig are among many authors participating in this year’s Twitter Fiction Festival.

The event is sponsored by AAP, Penguin Random House and Twitter and will take place virtually on May 11-15, 2015.

During the event, authors will share their text, photos, and video on Twitter. Each author will be assigned a daily time slot to live-stream their work on the social network.

The Festival will also host a competition for aspiring writers. There is an open call for submissions beginning March 2.
