Remix reflects how we write now in the digital age: Skipping, combining and reimagining the work, people and places that inspire us, folding together those moments to create something new.
From the Preface:
“They seemed to me to be poems and stories written not because the girls had some extra time on their hands, but because they had to be written. They mattered. They mattered to the girls who wrote them and they mattered to me, as a listener and reader.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Praise for Remix:
“Remix is an amazing collection of stories and poems and essays. Vibrant, varied, heartfelt and true, each piece resounds with authenticity. There can be no better testament to the richness of the mentor-mentee writing relationship than this beautiful collection.” – Kate Christensen, author and mentor
“I ran across the Manhattan Bridge. The summer day’s heat was dulled by the coolness of night. I slugged my tired body down Jay Street to my house, and then a blonde woman in casual dress clothes stopped me. Her smile was even friendlier than her greeting. She handed me a million-dollar bill—obviously it was fake. The woman said that on the back of it was a million-dollar question. Will you go to heaven? – Danni Green, mentee
