Enter The Best First Sentence Contest for a chance to win a critique of 10 pages of your work from one of the Master CraftFest teachers.

Imagine having Steve Berry, Grant Blackwood, Lorenzo Carcaterra, David Corbett, Steven James, D.P. Lyle, MD, or Gayle Lynds reading your work!

    Best first sentence of what? A published story? A work in progress? Something we hope will end up as the first sentence of a story?

      Any sentence that you consider would be a great opening sentence for a novel or short story.
