Are you interested in the future of content publishing? Are you a writer, artist, technologist or researcher engaged in finding new ways to tell stories to new audiences? Are you keen to hear from people working across books, digital, sound, video, AR, VR, and games? Held virtually this year, MIX 2021 offers an opportunity to join us from wherever you are in the world as we think about the future of content creation and publishing.

Based at Bath Spa University in the UK, MIX is a biennial conference that explores the intersection of writing and technology, bringing together people from around the world to make, think and talk. It includes two days of Maker Sessions on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July, including StoryFormer with BBC R&D and body as home/ phone as home: A digitally embodied workshop, followed by two days of papers, presentations and discussions on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th July.

Our keynote speakers are Annie Reid, narrative director at Ubisoft, Dialogue Book’s Sharmaine Lovegrove,  poet Caleb Parkin and Kathi Inman Berens, Associate Professor of Book Publishing and Digital Humanities at Portland State University. The conference programme also includes poetry film screenings on the theme of Amplified Voices curated by Adrian B Earle from Think/Write/Fly and Sarah Tremlett form Liberated Words.

This year, MIX is a collaboration with Bristol+Bath Creative R+D’s Amplified Publishing, exploring future models of content creation, discovery and distribution, alongside our industry partners Epic Games, Future and BT. B+B Creative R+D is funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, exploring new and innovative applications of technology across the sector and boosting the creative economy. Our other partners include Paper Nations, a creative writing incubator championing approaches to the art of writing that are inclusive, playful and exploratory. 

All events will take place virtually on Zoom. We hope to see you there.
