#### A Collaborative Twine (with code to steal)

[Haunted Hypertext]( is a collaborative Twine, co-authored with visitors to an IUP writing festival. The starting twine created a scenario with five difference spaces (each styled differently). Readers entered the narrative and, when they encountered a “dead-end,” were prompted to add the next passage through an embedded google form. ### Twine work
