_W.R.I.T.E.'95 Conference Themes_

As the new media industry continues to rapidly evolve and grow in several directions, W.R.I.T.E.'95
has multiple themes related to interactive writing in order to cover as much ground as possible:

Exploring the dimensions of interactivity available to writers: From navigation techniques to
reader-as-author

Software tools and environments for interactive writing and new media authoring

Writing for the Internet: Who's doing it, how's it being done, what are the business opportunities?

Working and writing on new media teams: Distributed teams and workgroup tools and
techniques

Good-bye Random House, Hello Microsoft? How writers and creators are affected by the
convergence of traditional media publishers with technology companies

_Panels_

Daily panel discussions combine experts from multiple disciplines and industries for lively debates on
critical issues related to interative technologies.

This year's panel topics are:

DAY 1:The Information Superhighway: Who's driving--artists, technicians or big business?

DAY 2: Interactive TV: Are screenwriters the only writers?

DAY 3: Writers and Technology: Will the new media create a larger market for writers than
traditional media?
