If you were to think that text communications can’t be literature, reconsider that thought.

Hope Bolinger (’19) and Alyssa Roat (’20) are adding a voice that is unique the literary globe with regards to upcoming book, “Dear Hero.” The storyline follows a superhero and a supervillain that are both looking for archnemeses on a software that actually works comparable to a dating internet site by matching prospective competitors.

When the two are matched, they correspond through the website. Instant texting turns to immediate hate. Nevertheless, the supers quickly realize that hate isn’t the reverse of love, and a relationship blossoms.

The theory stumbled on Bolinger and Roat through their very own experiences online.

“There are these exact things called accounts that are parody Twitter,” Bolinger stated. “Basically, they generate fun of cliches in young adult fiction. Alyssa made one for the stereotypical villain, therefore I made one for the stereotypical hero.”

After picking out the first concept, the 2 chose to co-write it. They planned to publish it during the period of a summer while working seven jobs among them.

The 2 worked simultaneously for a shared Bing doc, each going for a character and writing from that perspective throughout.

“Nine days later on, we’d a draft that is first” Roat stated.
