The First Line Contest

The First Line, published four times a year, seeks short stories between 300 and 5000 words that begin with a given sentence. For the fall, it’s: ” As soon as Harriet entered the building, she headed to the seventh floor.” The deadline is August 1. For the winter it’s: “It was the farthest north they had ever been.” The deadline is November 1. This is a paying market.
