The folks at Paste Magazine have teamed up with Biographile to create a writing contest to celebrate how hard it is to get the story started. For their “Write Start” contest, they are asking writers to submit a single opening paragraph of no more than 75 words that would inspire a reader to keep reading. To win this competition, you’ll need to be compact, descriptive and yet intriguing.
Besides bragging rights, winners will receive their opening words published on Paste and Biographile and an iPad Mini.
To enter, submit only one previously unpublished opening paragraph to their online form before January 26, 2015.
