J. R. Carpenter first began using the internet as a medium for experimental writing in 1993. She has been publishing books for just as long. In this talk she will lead us on a tour of early and more recent web-based works, demonstrating how she explores themes of place, displacement, community and the environment through performance, print and digital media.

Her pioneering web-based works have been exhibited, published, performed and presented in journals, galleries, museums and festivals around the world. She is a winner of the Dot Award for Digital Literature (2015), and the New Media Writing Prize (2016). She is the author of three books with a fourth forthcoming from Penned in the Margins in April 2018. She lives in Plymouth, UK.
