One Rock Band’s Twitter Story Experiment

PAPER044_72.jpgRock & roll frontman and novelist Chris Eaton will launch a Twitter publishing experiment on July 4th–intertwining his rock & roll tour with Rock Plaza Central, microblogging, and his writing career.

While touring with his folk/rock band, Eaton will publish 21 Twitter stories–encouraging readers to contribute their own twists and turns to the story on Twitter. The collaborative results will be published in Steel Bananas‘ upcoming anthology GULCH: An Assemblage of Poetry and Prose, a Tightrope Books release.

Here’s more from the article: “Anyone who follows Chris’s Rock Plaza tweet is also asked to reply to any story with one of their own, using the rhizome model to intertwine the two stories so that they both are a part of each other. The story need not follow the original in theme. All that is asked is that replies should contain 1/3 of the words from the original text.”
