Ben Tanzer's TwitLit story starts today!

TwitLit: A CCLaP story series

I'm happy to announce that the newest story in the CCLaP series TwitLit, Ben Tanzer's "I Loved Gunther Gebel," will be starting over at Twitter a little later this morning. Ben of course will need no introduction to regular visitors; on top of being a popular blogger and podcaster himself, he's also the author of two novels, as well as the story cycle Repetition Patterns, put out by the center in 2008.

Anyway, to read the live version of Ben's story as it's being serially published over the next two days, simply "follow" CCLaP's account at your own over at Twitter (twitter.com/cclapcenter); the twenty chapters comprising "Gebel" will be published on a roughly hourly basis over the next two days, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Chicago time or 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. GMT. (And don't worry about missing a few updates -- TwitLit stories are designed specifically so that one can skip a few chapters and still not be lost.) For those who don't want to bother with Twitter, don't forget that a downloadable high-quality PDF poster version of the entire story will be available here starting this Friday, over at the website's main TwitLit page (cclapcenter.com/twitlit). And don't forget, both Ben and I would love to hear your feedback about this experiment; you can do so as a comment to this blog post, over at the CCLaP Facebook group, or directly at Twitter by adding "@cclapcenter" to your tweet. I hope you like it!
