Pen To Print

The Ultimate First Line Competition

Win a copy of The Organised Writer by Antony Johnston

Pen to Print’s First Line Generator is one of the things you like most about our website. So, we thought it was time to update, but with your input!

Our friends at Bloomsbury Publishing are offering two copies of Antony Johnston’s The Organised Writer the ultimate guide for staying on top of your writing process, from managing your schedule and prioritising your writing time, to getting more written every day.

To win your copy we are looking for the ultimate first line for a novel.

The first line of your novel is the one that hooks your reader and can be the most memorable line of a book.  Have you got an idea for the ultimate first line but have no idea how to use it? Why not inspire someone to bring it alive in their own story? We want to hear it!

The best ideas will be added to our online Pen to Print first line generator pentoprint.org/first-line-generator/ and the winner and runner-up will each receive a copy of The Organised Writer by Antony Johnston.

Send your entries to: pentoprint@lbbd.gov.uk
