Join us for a book launch with a difference, as artist Gretchen Andrew presents the experience of writing her first novel, with YouTube as her only guide. The project explores the process driven novel and investing creative excuses to combat the common fears of creation"


As part of her residency at arebyte, artist Gretchen Andrew deploys the looping GIF medium to explore what you can and cannot learn, and by way of learning, ‘become’, by following “how to” videos on YouTube. HOW TO HOW TO HOW TO write a novel applies this self-taught process to writing a first novel.
