Writing and the Digital Generation: Essays on New Media Rhetoric

This edited collection, released in 2010, rests on the foundational premise that traditional rhetorical boundaries between sender and receiver are becoming increasingly blurred by digital participatory entertainment and assembles both theoretical and experiential perspectives on the emerging rhetorical implications of such fandom practices as fic-vids (video fan fiction), fantasy football, and online gaming. Every contributor to this collection was involved in his or her fandom, bringing distinctive insight and credibility to the conclusions.

Writing and the Digital Generation is available from McFarland in both print and e-book versions.
