At this month's WordLab, we will be taking a look at how the first sentence of a story (or the first line of a poem) can set the stage for the entire piece. Author Christopher Newgent, founder of Vouched Books, will be joining us for a reading from his latest chapbook ("The Fullness of Everything") and to guide us through our experiment in starting right.
Want to win free stuff? RSVP here on Meetup by Friday, May 4th, and you'll be entered to win a signed copy of "The Fullness of Everything" along with a $10 gift card to Vouched Books.
We had a great first meetup in April, and we're all looking forward to this next chance to get together and write. Spread the word! Bring your friends! Come ready to make awesome stuff happen!
Get involved! When you RSVP, you'll be given a chance to submit a really great sentence. Submit something original, and your sentence might be a part of our experiment!
