The Most Captivating Chapter 1  January 27, 2010 - March 15, 2010

Reading and Deliberating


The most important part of a book is the first chapter. Irrespective of the reader (whether he/she is an agent, publisher, or someone who is considering purchasing your book), the first sentence, paragraph and chapter need to be amazing.


This contest is set up to evaluate who - amongst all you talented WC writers - can write the best (most fluid, grammatically correct, enticing) first chapter.

Any genre can be entered, but it needs to be labelled Chapter 1 (not Prologue, Preface, or Chapter 27). Only Chapter 1 - any other chapters will not be considered for this contest (obviously).

Let the contest commence :)


Public acknowledgement of your amazingness


1st place 1st place
2nd place 2nd place
3rd place 3rd place
