Access Works! UnConference, Chaired by Deena Larsen and Lyle Skains

January 18 – 20, 2024, Online & World-Wide (Proposal deadline December 1)
We want to address barriers to access for electronic literature’s amazing and endless possibilities. Access barriers include disabilities (how can we share meaning and experiences across multiple senses?), technical (how can we provide authoring platforms and more within all tech capabilities?). This UnConference will explore these barriers and focus on ways to facilitate access for developing electronic literary stories, games, and art for all.  Please see the details at
