The First Line

Posted by Chastised-Dreamz on Friday, December 19, 2008

The First Line is a literary journal. I learned about their website in a creative writing workshop that I took last semester. They post a first line and you write a story that starts with that first line and submit it to them. They choose the winning story for that first line, publish it, and the winner gets paid. Check out the website to learn more.

It's also a cool site to visit if you're having writer's block. It's interesting to see the type of story that you can create with that one line. My instructor used the first line as an in-class assignment. We all wrote on the line and then some people read what they wrote. It was cool to see the different ways that everyone interpreted it.
