For the first time in two decades, new works have entered the public domain in the United States! We're now free to reuse, remix, and republish these books, movies, and songs which were first published in the United States in 1923!!

That means it's ...


To participate in this jam:

  • reuse some newly-public-domain'd material
  • change it up in some way
  • post it here for all of us to see!

Any and all works are accepted: visual novels, interactive poetry, video remixes, music, shmups, Twine mashups, etc. There are no limits on submission type whatsoever.
