This Is Literary Idol

“Curiouser and curiouser.”


Reader’s Theater Original Play

In READ magazine, we were constantly dreaming up new ways in which to entice students with the classics. We delivered Shakespeare, Poe, and Twain in a myriad of different stories over the years. In the writing of this play, I placed the three literary icons (along with Emily Dickinson and Langston Hughes) in an American Idol type setting, hence the title. It was a novel idea that stemmed from a collaboration of minds including the other editors and designers on READ. That is to say that the concept was a team effort that resulted in my writing it.
