Nominate Your Favorite First Lines for GrubStreet's Cafe Mural
From "Call me Ishmael" to "I am an invisible man," it is a truth universally acknowledged that we all have our favorite first lines from literature.
That's why we're asking the GrubStreet community to nominate your favorite first lines from published books, essays, poems, plays, short stories, and more for the chance that your pick will be included in a new mural of first lines inside our future café at the Center for Creative Writing.
If you have a first sentence that sings, share it with us by Monday, May 9th, and you just might see it included in the mural.
Though there's no limit to the number of first lines you can submit, please note that not all nominated first lines will be included in the mural. We hope to fit as many as possible, though, and we're so grateful for your suggestions.
