This is a creative project, and is a innovative and experimental writing piece called a hybrid text. This means it is one story told through a variety of genres (drawings, poetry, and prose). I was inspired by Shakespeare, so the title is a shoutout to one of his works, and the story itself is the fictional telling of the story of a girl completely through her dreams. Inspiration came from a bit of innovative and experimental genres, along with works produced underneath them. It was inspired by postmodern writing (such as poetry by Charles Olsen), a bit of projective verse and BEAT style, surrealism and modernism, procedurals, hybrid texts such as "The Collected Works of Billy the Kid", and many experimental pieces of writing that appear in the collected works of "Experimental Literature." The most interesting part of a hybrid text, which I would like to focus on, as I will focus on a forward about the research which has gone into the piece, and an afterword of its usefulness in my academic and professional career, is that such a piece, all within itself, showcases a variety of my skills throughout different genres. As I am a writing studies concentration, this is helpful in showcasing a variety of my writing styles within one example, and would therefore be a great addition to a professional portfolio.
