Exclusively, on Writing Raw: really BAD Shakespeare, a bi-monthly penny dreadful… really BAD Shakespeare is a new adventure in storytelling. Based on the concept of the penny dreadfuls from the nineteenth century, really BAD Shakespeare is a black comedy based on the "end of days" in the fictional town of Potter's Field, Illinois. Published bi-monthly and containing less than 1,500 words per episode, this experiment in creative writing will allow writers to expand their storytelling skills while pushing the plot further.

Episode 9: What Fools These Mortals Be!

Due to the holiday, the NEW Episode of really BAD Shakespeare will appear on February 17
