Need To Know
• Alt Lit or Alternative Literature is an ill-defined genre that bases itself around a social media community. With a heavy focus on a self-publication,
contrived oddity and, er, quinoa, Alt Lit usually uses poetically sparse language and functions within a self-consciously contemporary society with links to Buddhism and Taoism. ‘ I Livetweeted Getting Robbed & Watching The Hobbit Alone at 9:45pm In Manhattan On Christmas Eve’ was a gamechanger.
• “I loved the Illuminati Girl Gang piece on ‘Soya Milk’. It just so transcended the semi-skimmed bullshit of society, yknow?”
• “Did you see how many retweets I got?”
