My notes from the first meeting of groop in 2008 can be re-purposed as writing exercises. Your submission of 350 words or less is due February 28. The winning short short story or beginning of a short story or beginning of a novel or poem or diatribe or autobiography will be posted to the website and will receive a secret prize (to be disclosed when we also reveal our get-rich-quick can't-believe-no-one-else-is-doing-this scheme in a few weeks.)
1. Start a story with the line: "One day, my grandmother decided that I should collect bells." (Jen)
2. White lies. Your thoughts? (Unattributed)
3. How do you put leaves on the poet tree? (Nick)
I look forward to your submissions.
