Build E-lit Games (Playing With Words) with Edith Viau
As part of the #CodeArtTogether series of Workshops at CODAME
Interested in generative poetry and electronic literature? Through collaborative coding projects, we will learn how to build games based on the written word, in the browser. These interactive games will have something in common: they all try to help with the writer’s block! Bring your imaginary worlds and your creativity to this workshop as we will code interactive games where writing is the main action.

Familiarity with HTML/CSS will be also helpful.
