Emmett Rensin and Alex Aciman were students at the University of Chicago when they wrote TWITTERATURE in their dorm room, reimagining great works of literature as a series of tweets from the protagonist. Alexander’s work has appeared in The New York Times and the New York Sun. He would like to be a writer, own a pair of John Lobb shoes, and live out his days reading and writing with his brothers in the Mediterranean basin. While Emmett’s dream is to be a sea captain, he has settled on a mastery of card magic and shaggy-dog jokes, and penning the Great American Novel.
