We are a group of creative writing teachers. We are compiling Twitter-style adaptations of classic literature for our students. We are not finished.

We are, however, close.

this is our first challenge – translate traditional fairytales into twitter feeds.

this is the section that is currently in progress.

so, why start with fairytales, you ask?

simple.

they’re short.

they’re well-known.

they’re somewhat universal.

they have a limited character count.

and, most importantly, students can create these in a single class period and be satisfied with the results.

what’s next after fairytales?

the bard, of course.
