This paper describes and discusses two digital writing projects carried out in a Dorset secondary school:

We wanted to enable easy access to digital storytelling for young writers who might not know about, and probably not attempt to use, digital tools to tell stories. We also wanted to enhance our university’s engagement with the local community.

With this in mind, in May 2018 and May 2019 we led projects in which Bournemouth University undergraduates worked with secondary school pupils to devise and produce digital interactive stories. Each project led to the creation of fully-working digital interactive multi-media narratives, published online.
