LINE! is a collaborative storytelling project. If you would like to participate, you can sign up here.

Please fill out the form with your name and email. In the next few weeks, you’ll receive an email with one line of a story. You have 24 hours to respond with the next line (the faster you respond, the faster the story gets written!). You can be creative with punctuation, but keep it under 50 words. If you do not respond within 24 hours, the story will move to the next person and you will move to the bottom of the list.

There are only four rules: our first story is in the third person (he/she/it), “she” is the protagonist’s preferred pronoun, avoid proper names if possible (instead of New York City, use “the city”, instead of “Karen”, use she/her friend/her boss), and hate speech/sexual violence/oppressive language will not be used.

The story will be lightly edited for clarity if necessary and posted on this page when it is complete.Β Your email and name will remain private. You will get an email when the story is finished and have the ability to add your name to the author list at that time. Happy writing! Or sad. The plot could go either way.
