Hi! I'm Rory Green.
I'm a writer, editor and digital media who lives and works on Wangal land.
My main creative practice revolves around interactive and generative digital poetry. My poetry generator forecast assemblage was a finalist in the 2022 Goolugatup Heathcote Digital Art Prize, and my collaborative generative poem Trace Garden was presented at the 2022 Cementa Art Festival.
Some of my other published work includes:
- gengar, Cordite Poetry Review
- UP, Taper
- futurity blues, Running Dog
- sentiment anomaly, The Lifted Brow
In 2022 my first print poetry chapbook, the attentions, was published by Puncher & Wattmann's Slow Loris imprint.
I love teaching and mentoring, particularly across areas of interactive and multimedia writing. For the past few years I've facilitated Toolkits: Digital Storytelling, and I've run workshops for Queensland Poetry, Writers SA, and Emerging Writers Festival among others.
I also have an ongoing writing project called Otherwise Pokedex, a Tinyletter I have been publishing since January 2017 with the aim to publish a poem for each of the 151 first generation Pokemon.
Finally, I also love making zines. My infozines are free to download and distribute:
- Make computer-generated poems, fiction and bots with Tracery
- Little book of poem games
- Make interactive fiction with Twine
- Making narrative games with Bitsy
I'm currently available to read my work and facilitate workshops on a number of topics including: computer-facilitated writing, zine-making, creative constraints, and online communities. Email me if you've got a hookup!
Some past events I've been involved with include:
- Workshop: 'Deconstructing Digital Poetry', Running Dog at Carriageworks, March 2021
- Workshop: 'Digital Writing Experimentations', National Young Writers Festival, October 2020
- Workshop: 'Writing Machines', Queensland Poetry Festival, September 2020
- Panel: 'Games as Digital Literature', Freeplay Independent Games Festival, May 2020
- Workshop: 'Decoding Digital Storytelling', Digital Writers Festival, November 2019
