We are pleased to announce that registration is now available for

held at

work "Lexia to Perplexia" and
Robin Rimbaud, sound artist, on working with digital texts and sounds.

Incubation2 is the second trAce International Conference on Writing &
Internet, and the premier international event for writers working on the

web. In 2000 it attracted delegates from around the world, including
America, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Holland, Norway, Slovenia and
2002 promises to be even bigger. Incubation2 is not just a chance to
some of the best writers working on the web today. It will provide a
showcase for the writing of the future and offer a glimpse into the work
writers who use the internet to develop ground-breaking content: poetry
sound and images, personal histories, news, journalism, stories with
multiple endings. This is writing on the web, for the web, and about the


The conference is a significant opportunity for writers to extend their
professional development, learn new skills, and interact with some of
leading writers and artists working online today. There will be
opportunities to meet with writers who have made a significant
to this new form, as well as the chance for writers to show their own
and look at other people's. There will be skills-based workshops and
feedback workshops, panel discussions, presentations, demonstrations and

performances, and plenty of opportunity to network and meet those people
only ever knew online.

An archive of pictures, sound recordings and comments about the previous

Incubation conference in 2000 is also available.

We hope we will be meeting you in July.
