The Star Wars Shakespeare books have finally wrapped up their six part series, and they are each more beautiful than the last.
In honor of this momentous occasion, Quirk Books is generously giving away one copy of the first in the series, Verily, A New Hope. We promise once you read the first you won’t be able to put the rest down.
In order to win this contest, which is truly “A thing divine, for nothing natural / I ever saw so noble.”*
**But we aren’t pigeon-liver’d, and we’re running this contest through Twitter!
All you have to do to enter is come up with a Shakespearean adaptation based on another movie. Tweet us a one-liner from your adaptation (For example, something like, “T-rex or not t-rex… that is the question.” – Jurassic World. And no you cant use that we dont know your life.) We’ll trust that you have the rest of the manuscript buried somewhere in your quarters near the Globe. Don’t worry, official rules are listed below.
At the end of the week, a team of our best Shakespearean experts (read: those of us who know more than just Romeo and Juliet) will sit down and heretofor judge the contest, which runs from Thursday, July 30th to Thursday, August 6th at 11:59 pm, PCT.
Alright so. To clarify: if you want to win a copy of Verily, A New Hope, here’s what you gotta do:
- follow Sub-Cultured on Twitter: @sub_cultured
- Tweet at us! We want to hear your best one-liner adapted FROM a movie INTO Shakespearean style writing.
- Make sure you get in your tweet between July 30th and August 6th. The contest ENDS at 11:59, 8/6/15 (Pacific Coastal time for all you west coasters)
**Hamlet, not The Lion King. probably.
