First Sentence Prize Draw

Buller's picture of HuiaWith the start of November, we know many of you are kicking off your frantic plans to write a novel in a month with NaNoWriMo. Others will be continuing on with old projects, or using the improving weather to sit outside with a red pen and make a start on those edits.

So whatever you’re working on, let the rest of SpecFicNZ take a peek and share the first sentence. It can be a brand new work today, or the masterpiece you’ve been writing for years, flash fiction or a novel that never seems to end. We just want one sentence – and yes, we have prizes!

You can post the first sentence of your work in progress as a comment to the First Sentence thread in our SpecFicNZ competitions group (you’ll need to be a logged in member to access the thread) no later than 7th November, and we’ll pick three winners at random, who will each win one of three Buller’s Birds notebooks (Huia, Morepork or Stichbird) kindly donated by Te Papa Press.
