Andrew Pyper story featured in the inaugural Twitter Fiction Festival

Proving that social media is useful for more than stalking celebrities, the world’s first Twitter Fiction Festival kicks off today.

Until Dec. 2, a dedicated Twitter page will showcase 140-character experimental fiction, including a story from Toronto author Andrew Pyper.

Pyper’s “White House,” a retelling of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw set in the present-day White House, will be featured from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2., 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Look for Pyper’s story under the name Hannah Bly (@whnanny).
