Frightening First Line Contest

Entry Fees



A class of your choosing with Gotham Writers Workshop


Autumn is the season of rustling leaves, a chill in the air, and, of course, Halloween.

In that spirit, we invite you to create the first line of a frightening story. Just the first line. But we want that first line to be so intriguing or chilling or scary that it makes our skin tingle and our nerves twitch.

Whoever writes the first line that best accomplishes this goal will receive a free Gotham class of his or her choosing, with the exception of a few premium classes.

(You can actually use more than one sentence, but there is a limit of 31 words.)
