Collaboration is nothing new within the art and literary World. But we have to admit there is something intriguing about the Twitter Fiction Festival kicking off at the end of this month...
Twitter Fiction Festival

The shortlisted authors of the Festival were announced yesterday and we look forward to the 5 day event all kicking off on November 28th.

As the Twitter blog explained prior to the shortlisted authors being chosen:
