Thank you to everyone that has signed up for the first Retelling-A-Thon. I’m sure it’s going to be a lot of fun and it wouldn’t be that without all of you.
Now, on to the important things you’ve come here for today!
There are a lot of Shakespearean works from which to draw inspiration for retellings. For the RetellingAThon prompts, I chose these five plays specifically: Macbeth, Hamlet, Twelfth Night,, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo & Juliet.
Two spots are left available for Reader’s Choice. You can choose two more titles based on the prompts or ANY Shakespeare retellings you can think of!
Over the next couple weeks before the readathon starts I’ll be sharing some title recommendations that will fit these prompts, but don’t think they’re to restrain you! As long as it fits the prompt, no matter the genre/format, it’s fair!
Do Not Say the Name: A retelling of Macbeth
Talk to the Skull: A retelling of Hamlet
Witty Fool or Foolish Wit?: A retelling of Twelfth Night
Foolish Mortals and Faeries: A retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Star Crossed Lovers: A retelling of Romeo & Juliet
Readers Choice x2
