TWIT LIT CLASSICS ®

Twit Lit Classics® is a series of books and short works involving the abridgment and reimagination of classic works of literature into contemporary tweets. Abridgements of short works of literature, found in the public domain, are published in magazines, literary journals, and on twitlitclassics.com.

Longer works will be published as books by the Racehorse unit of Skyhorse Publishing. The first two books–#Moby-Dick and #Frankenstein–are now available for purchase.

Each abridgment can serve as a unique reimagination for lit lovers, or as a fun lit companion for students and first-time readers of the original work, or as an accessible alternative for those too busy to read longer works. A longer description of the process and project is available on the about page.

Short works of classic twit lit are available on the main page, where there are also links to excerpts from the novels.

Thanks for taking a look!
