Carolyn Guyer's Biography
Among the early wave of hypertext fiction writers, Carolyn Guyer is the author of Quibbling, published by Eastgate Systems, Inc. in 1992. Her other hypertexts include a collaborative fiction, Izme Pass, with co-authors Martha Petry and Michael Joyce; Lasting Image, with co-author Michael Joyce, published by Eastgate Systems, Inc. on the web in 1999; and Sister Stories, with co-authors Rosemary Joyce and Michael Joyce, published by NYU Press Online in 2000. In 1993, Guyer also founded HiPitched Voices, a women’s hypertext collective that helped to launch the Hypertext Hotel at Brown University. Guyer originally came to hypertext as a mixed-media visual artist, and in recent years has turned to textiles as her primary visual art interest. It was in this medium that she and Michael Joyce created More Than a Year, an art book poem on canvas, translated into Polish and published in the post-disciplinary journal on contemporary culture Ha!art in 2013. Now retired, she was Director of Web Development at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
