2004 saw the third Incubation, the premier international event for writers working on the web providing ideas, information and debate for the new media writing community. There were opportunities to experience recent works and lively discussions about the ways new media texts are made, discussed, and reviewed. We also explored methods of teaching and digital archiving in a creative context. Incubation aims to encourage interdisciplinary creativity and cross-fertilisation, and we were especially interested in introducing the form to writers and artists for whom it is a new idea as well as helping practitioners to share and expand their work.

The themes for 2004 were:
A. Developing a new form: contemporary textual works in new media and performance
B. The practice of making: creative and professional practice; online teaching and learning.
C. Critique and criteria: criticism, reviewing, defining, and archiving of new media writing.
