Daphne City is a digital story with interactive activities that require reading the text, as well as re-reading it and re-writing it. The narrative appears in a digital environment in a linear and non-linear fashion, along with its corresponding echoes in other forms such as news text, twitter, Facebook, blogs, etc.

Daphne City is then a digital literary creation which is supported on the web and all its interaction and communication possibilities, because the text replicates itself and allows the user to replicate and recreate it in turn.


“The Press” and “Xk-uno” are two websites that are an extension of the story of “Lucrecia Daphne”. It is an expansion of its fictional reality in the media format of magazines and newspapers. They narrate, in news form, the most important events that take place in the universe of “Lucrecia Daphne”, promoting the proliferation and re-invention (re-writing) of the story in the readers’ comments. Nevertheless, and because of the readers’ interaction, the expansion does not stop there but instead invades, or attempts to invade, the social networks such as twitter and Facebook.
