BEYOND READ/WRITE: A LITERATURE REMIX MASTERCLASS (part of the National Young Writers Festival)

Read/Write has always been a dichotomy in literature. The author on one side, reader on the other, both toiling away in solitude. But is there a more collaborative space for literature? Can work be read & write? Creative Commons Australia invites you to cut, paste, shuffle & republish in this remixable literature masterclass.
