As part of the inaugural Brisbane Writers’ fringe event, Writing – The Fringe Festival 2008, Remix My Lit will be hosting a live literary remix session this Saturday from 8:00pm at Sling Bar in West End.
We want you. This is an interactive experience; we’re giving you the chance to be part of the performance. Get familiar with our esteemed authors and their short stories, then tear them to bits! Proof paras, snip sentences, tuck the text or cull characters. We want to see what you make out of these stories. They are all under a Creative Commons licence, so you’re allowed to play with the. Roll back your sleeves, this could get messy!
Do some creative cutting up on the night, or perfect your pruning precision in advance of time, but all your remixes will be incorporated into the live audio/visual set by local multi-media artists collapsicon and Simulcast. Plus, we’ll even consider anything you write for publication in the anthology alongside some of Australia’s best writers.
