Last semester, my Digital Media students helped me curate the first set of digital stories that were published on the new online companion site to The Florida Review, called Aquifer: The Florida Review Online.
The Florida Review is an internationally distributed literary journal published out of the University of Central Florida, and edited by Lisa Roney. Throughout the semester, the students first analyzed digital stories according to ideas about personal narratives and visual storytelling covered in class, then proposed ways to leverage the characteristics of Web 2.0 storytelling in their presentation, and finally proposed a selection rationale for accepting digital stories for online publication. So far, two digital stories have been published online (https://floridareview.cah.ucf.edu/aquifer), and more are in the pipeline.
We’re seeking more submissions for publication consideration as the project moves into the future. Here’s the link to submit a story: https://floridareview.submittable.com/submit.
