SLICE Literary is hosting a Live Exquisite Corpse Reading, Sponsored by The Authors Guild
We’ve lined up #1 New York Times bestsellers and literary superstars right alongside some of this year’s biggest debut authors for an Exquisite Corpse unlike any you’ve ever seen (LIVE!).
SLICE’s Randy Brown Winston & The Authors Guild’s Paul Morris are serving as hosts for the reading and will keep even the most unruly writers in line!
Here’s how this Exquisite Corpse game works: One author plucks a sentence from a hat and uses that sentence to kick off a story—right there, on the spot. The next author gets the last sentence of the first author’s installment (without hearing anything that preceded it) and continues the story. And so on. The result is a story stitched together, live, right before your eyes, without any preparation, by these literary masters…
Jessie Chaffee, Florence in Ecstasy
Julia Fierro, The Gypsy Moth Summer
Lev Grossman, The Magicians Trilogy
Luis Jamarillo, The Doctor’s Wife
