Best First Sentence Contest at this year's Thrillerfest 2016!

Best First Sentence Contest
Please submit your very best first sentence to bestfirstsentence@gmail.com before May 31, 2016 for a chance to win a critique from one of the Master CraftFest teachers. What a fabulous opportunity! Master CraftFest teachers will be given a blind list of all the submissions, and each will chose their favorite opening sentence. The winners receive a critique of ten pages of their work from the teacher who chose their sentence.
