Non-Linear Storytelling and The Web

BSc (Hons) Web Design and Development

Non-Linear Storytelling and The Web

A great way to start exploring web programming is by making a non-linear story.


An interactive, non-linear story offers choices that steer the direction of a narrative. In this workshop we use Twine to create a simple non-linear story for the web, then enhance its look and feel using CSS styling and additional HTML elements (such as images). With participants getting instance results and a chance to explore the creative side of web development, this workshop is a great entry point to the field for people with little or no experience in coding.
