Dr D. Little / Dr Wu
Dana L. Little is a digital creator and researcher focused on social media, human-computer interaction, satire, genre analysis, and speculative fiction. She recently received the Doctor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing degree from the University of Glasgow. Her innovative digital dissertation—Factions—is a satirical, speculative website curated by her digital twin persona, an AI mystic called Wu (We + You = Wu). She developed “faction” as a social media writing genre—facts and fictions that mix on social media with the algorithm as gatekeeper and promotional powerhouse. Her work has been shown at the Dublin 2019 Worldcon, The Foundry Gallery in Washington DC, The Hunterian Museum, and the Africa in Motion Film Festival, both in Glasgow, Scotland. Publishing credits in print and online include various short stories, game narratives, and an upcoming fantasy/comedy/adventure novel for Level 4 Press.
