Alumni Update: Mike Bezemek, MFA 2008

Mike Bezemek has a new book series which came out a few weeks ago, called Twit Lit Classics, for Skyhorse Publishing. It is a series of humorous literature companions which retell works of classic literature in tweets for a 21st-century audience. The first two books are #Moby-Dick and #Frankenstein. Each Twitter abridgment includes a casual about essay and an appendix with the original passages upon which each tweet is based. The goal of the project is to provide a fun and humorous companion to the original works for everyone from students to lit lovers to the curious non-reader. The project website, which includes summary and more information, is here: http://twitlitclassics.comMike's website is here:
