#writing publishes open-access and print books in digital rhetoric, new media studies, digital humanities, techno-pedagogy, and similar areas of interest. The editors seek single- or co-authored monographs of any length that address themes, methodologies, and/or pedagogies in these areas. This series will publish two books a year as open-access PDFs as well as ePUBs and short-run prints. The open-access publications can have interactive media elements, as needed, while the bound imprints will be designed with static screenshots that refer readers to interactive elements in the online version. We are interested in books that require a few examples of multimedia within an otherwise linear argument, not screen-based books. #writing does not currently accept edited collections.

In this book, the first published in the #writing series, Derek N.

Influenced by work on distant reading (Moretti, 2005) and thin description (Love, 2010 & 2013), this monograph attends to forms of knowledge newly available via computationally mined, aggregated data from large collections of texts, which is then used to build experimental models for discerning non-obvious relationships. ...
