Tom Abba from Ambient Literature is a writer and designer working with the form of digital and physical books. As part of this month’s International Literature Showcase ‘Connections’ theme – ‘Beyond the Page’ – he puts forward his case for embracing, and adapting to, digital storytelling.

Here are two truths about innovation, about trying something new:
- You don’t need piles of cash.
- You don’t need to know how to code.
