UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED — WINNER ANNOUNCED HERE
The Journal Pulp is offering a $100.00 cash prize for the following:
Best first sentence for a novel about a modern-day prophet who does not believe in God — who is neither left nor right, who preaches reason and the philomathic, concerning which things she’s almost psychopathic — and whose following grows, despite the terrifying enigma she presents.
Rules and guidelines:
No outrageous run-ons. You can submit anonymously or under your real name, it doesn’t matter.
No minimum length requirement.
Submit as many separate entries as you’d like.
Leave your sentence in the comments section below.
The winner will be selected by the Journal Pulp.
The contest will be open for two weeks from today: January, 10th, 2013 through January 24th, 2013, at midnight.
If your sentence doesn’t appear in the comments after you’ve submitted, it’s almost certainly because of this aggressive SPAM filter. Please note that I check the SPAM folder carefully and regularly, and that your sentence, if it’s not SPAM, will be approved. I do not censor.
