Meow Memoir

Evie Godfrey2023 Longlist, 2023 Shortlist - Student, Opening Up

This is an interactive story told from the perspective of a house cat. The work is told from birth to death, and is meant to tell the family’s story from an outside non-biased perspective. You learn about the characters from the cat’s description and can come to conclusions about their personality based on their actions rather than their words. The work can be read linearly by navigating through “memories” or it can be read nonlinearly based on where in the house the passages take place. Passages contain links to relevant terminology and readers can jump around the story in this way as well.
