Mix-ups, Mash-ups, Pop Culture, and Scholars

The video below is the center piece of Phil Nel’s smart and witty presentation “Metafiction for Children: A Users Guide.” You are welcome to just watch the video here, but I suggest going to the presentation itself to read Phil’s Curator’s Note and others’ comments on it.  (ETA As he writes in the comments below, Phil’s now got a post at his own blog with an ever-growing book list.) And then, if you have time, snoop around In Media Res, a bit.  They are doing some very neat stuff. I’m particularly interested in their call for proposals for this, but others look fascinating too.

  1. Thanks, Monica! Assisted by child_lit members and others, I’ve typed up a list of more metafiction, and posted it here:
