SA Writers Centre is excited to announce our new digital writer in residence for the first quarter of 2015: Samuel Jozeps.
Brief Project Overview
Sam’s intrigue into storytelling across alternative platforms piqued at university and through his work, this continues to grow. With the following three projects, he intends to promote (and produce more of his own) creative writing, and the storytelling tradition via digital media:
A series of live late night podcasts recorded live from various locations around the city, in a nod to the bedtime storytelling tradition. These will be themed in relation to the space surrounding him. Predominantly readings of online-sourced poetry, Sam will invite the writing community to submit works of poetry and short prose to be broadcast. (For more information or to submit works keep your eye on our enews or website).
A short piece of fiction written for and published via Instagram. Sam will work with illustrators and designers to bring the work to life for the popular image sharing platform.
A digital marketing for professionals workshop facilitated through the SA Writers Centre. Focussing on developing an overall digital marketing strategy, analytics, advertising and creating good content for social media.
Sam Jozeps graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Adelaide with a double major in English and Philosophy, finishing his Philosophy major on scholarship at the University of Helsinki, Finland.
