Videos in ELQ and Books
Convergence Publishing has arrived to ELQ and Exile Editions!
ELQ, along with Exile Editions, is leading the way in providing a multi-platform reading experience… For each issue of ELQ, we sit down with various contributing authors and do a video interview and/or reading related to their work that is appearing. From those sessions, we produce short videos as a way to expand your reading experience. You can enjoy these online features by simply scanning the QR (Quick Read) codes found throughout the print and digital issues with your web-enabled camera phone. Or, use the traditional method of entering the URL into your computer browser to view on your monitor. Note: smartphones often require the user to download a reader, many of which are available free online… do so, and enjoy.
The following videos are complementary features to the recently released issues of ELQ 35.1, 35.2 and 35.3, plus some from our new Exile Translation Series videos ~ QR codes appear on pages within the issue, and these allow Smartphone users (who have downloaded/installed the QR App) to access/view the videos on their phone/tablet/blackberry/etc. What is presented below are selections from those videos produced in-house specifically for the author’s contribution (there are often many more video/QR links within each issue’s pages).
