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.
