Trends in digital literature: Discovering possibilities

I was amazed this week in engaging with the modules and in my further research. The article From twitterbots to VR: 10 of the best examples of digital literature was particularly interesting as it gave me further examples to view. I especially loved the Alan Bigelow’s How to rob a bank. I had never come across something like this before and it was interesting to see the modern digital elements used in a narrative. Wright (2019) suggests that it is a reinvention of Bonnie and Clyde for the digital age. As a teacher of teenagers, I can see how this modern digital version of a theme can be more relatable for them.
