Jerome Fletcher

Jerome Fletcher is Associate Professor of Performance Writing and the award leader for the MA Performance Writing at Falmouth University. His practice-led research is focused on a three year project into Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity in Practice (ELMCIP). This project brings together seven European universities researching various aspects of e-literature and networked communities. Jerome’s particular interest lies in the relationship between digital text and performativity. As a page-based writer he has published seven books – 3 children’s books with OUP, Scholastic and Corgi, 3 literary concept books and a translation of a French novella. His own work has been translated into eight languages. He has also made artist’s books and experimental texts. His performance works are collaborative and multimodal, comprising live voice, projection, digital text generation and sound. He has performed at the Barbican London, Kunsthalle Vienna, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Leo Koenig Gallery New York, as well as in Naples, Moscow, Paris, Barcelona and Prague.
