Eastgate Systems invites you to join us for a provocative one-day hypertext
event. Join leading hypertext writers, editors, and designers in charting the
frontiers of hypermedia, exploring how hypertext will redefine and extend
serious writing while preserving the essential values of literacy.

Whether you read, write, or publish hypertext, or if you simply want
to learn more about hypertext and the future of interactive media,
this workshop will provide you with thoughtful, up-to-date and
practical information, as well as plenty of food for thought (not to
mention lunch). And in keeping with the hands-on spirit of the
technology, we'll provide you with a selection of fine hypertexts.

We do not believe the future of electronic publishing lies in games and
product tie-ins. Come help us redefine the book!
