about

Twit Lit Classics® is a humorous companion book series which retells works of classic literature in tweets for a 21st-century audience.

With a casual about-essay and an appendix presenting the original passages upon which the tweets are based, Twit Lit Classics can serve as fun lit companions for everyone from students to lit lovers.

Books are published by the Racehorse unit of Skyhorse Publishing. Retellings of short works of literature, found in the public domain, are published in magazines, literary journals, and here on this website. The first two–#Moby-Dick and #Frankenstein–are now available!
