Remix My Lit

Remix My Lit is a project based in Brisbane which aims to provide remixed and remixable texts, so that literature might take advantage of a creative practice that has been prevalent in movies and music for quite a while. Copyright laws tend to get in the way more often for printed works than other media, which has severely limited their availability for remix in the past. Remix My Lit hopes to change that while still respecting copyrights

Prominent Australian authors have written new short stories and released them under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial ShareAlike licence. What that means is you can remix the stories, but only if you acknowledge the author, the remix is not for commercial use, and your new work is available for others to remix.

The site now offers an anthology of remixed (and remixable) literature called Through the Clock’s Workings.
