After Hades and Persephone, I’d like to develop more myths, some of Shakespeare’s plays, and classic works of literature into modern renditions.
This is a long-term goal of mine that I’m passionate enough to stick with. I’ve even been thinking of a name for this project that would make it feel official. “Mockingbird Studio” was an idea, a reference to To Kill A Mockingbird. However it’s been used by some other establishments so I’m still brainstorming.
Far, far down the road, I’d like this project to have published “condensed” renditions of classic literature, plays, and texts that teachers and librarians can use at schools. I’d like to collaborate with filmmakers to create short films or episodes based on the renditions. I want this to be a studio that combines poetry, writing, illustration, design, and film. Teachers can order packages of what texts they’re teaching that include multiple medias of the renditions that they can teach to their class, along with teaching strategies and guides.
Here’s to a generation of enthusiastic readers!
