Kate Pullinger writes for both print and digital platforms. Her most recent fiction, Jellybone, a novel for smartphones, was published in September 2017 - it's currently available for free via the Oolipo app on both iOS and Android.
Kate's novel Landing Gear was published in 2014. Landing Gear takes the story told in Pullinger's collaborative multimedia digital work, co-created with Chris Joseph, Flight Paths: A Networked Novel, and develops it further. Also in 2014, Pullinger collaborated with novelist and theatre-maker Neil Bartlett to create the digital war memorial, Letter to an Unknown Soldier. Commissioned by 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and inspired by the statue of the unknown soldier on Platform One of Paddington Train Station in London, this project inspired 22,000 people to write letters to the unknown soldier. A selection of these letters was published in a book of the same name.Read more
