For my English course I have to come up with a project based off of -you guessed it- The Epic of Gilgamesh.
Now, the project can be anything. Seriously. Anything. However, I lack the creative gene and I would lovelovelove some help from the incredibly talented people of YWS.

Any ideas you'd be willing to throw around?
One example the teacher gave from a past class was phenomenal - someone had re-written the book but as a children's story (along with amazing illustrations) and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. Maybe if the book was written but set in a modern era? I don't know. Let me know what you think and please feel free to throw some ideas around!

changing holds

We made a comic book, but it was sort of meh.
Ooh! You should write a poem based off of it. That would be funfunfun, no?
