Performance Shakespeare 2016
2016 marked the quatercentenary celebration of William Shakespeare’s death. In honour of the anniversary, we created the Performance Shakespeare 2016 project to capture a snapshot of 435 performances across 83 countries around the world and show how people are interpreting Shakespeare 400 years later. From single-person festival plays, to large, multi-country, touring performances, the site showcases a diverse set of responses to Shakespeare across cultures, languages, and traditions. All of Shakespeare’s plays are represented on the site, as well as some of his other written work, and even original creations that use Shakespeare as inspiration.
The Performance Shakespeare 2016 site was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and is archived in perpetuity with the Folger Shakespeare Library.

The Rejected McSweeney’s Lists project
As a writer, I know all too well how difficult it can be to place work that was composed for a specific publisher or purpose and then rejected. So often, rejections have less to do with quality, and more to do with other factors like a lack of publishing space, similar pieces previously published, or personal editorial preferences. Rejected McSweeney’s Lists is a brand new site that publishes creative work that is accomplished but has been rejected and can’t find its place.
The Rejected blog is accepting submissions and can be found here: www.rejectedmcsweeneyslists.com.
