Literary Mixtape: Remix the Classics
Date: Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 5:30 pm through 7:00 pm
Location: National Portrait Gallery Kogod Courtyard (800 F NW)
You know how DJs do it: take a classic hit, sample it, mix it, and update it for a new audience. Writers can make remixes too. In this workshop, you will create new writing by putting your spin on a classic literary work. Each participant will receive a poem or a short story that you can rearrange, rewrite, re-verse. Sample the lines you like, reimagine the setting, reframe the story, recast the characters. Remix it!
No experience is necessary. Just come with an open mind and a writing instrument or computer.
