Call for papers - Journal of Media Practice
Issue 12.2: 'Story'

The rapidly expanding field of media practitioners is helping create forms that change the way we understand the story.  While traditional story forms continue to dominate the mainstream, new technologies are enabling people to experiment as never before.  Alongside the work of a generation of skilled media students are grassroots organisations inspired by stories in their locality or wider concerns that might have global reach.  Interactive game-playing and multiple-level narratives are only two of the ways in which our understanding of story-form is being re-thought.
The Journal of Media Practice will dedicate issue 12.2 to contributions that explore the concept of story.  We anticipate traditional papers but would also welcome submissions in forms such as interviews, work-in-progress, visual and audio essays as well as commentaries on the ways in which story is being re-imagined for the twenty-first century.
