Last week it was Tale Publishing’s privilege to launch the Monash Writers Group Anthology, The First line. This was their second anthology after last year’s View from the Hill. This time, fifteen authors contributed to the anthology and, for about a third of them, it was their first time having something published. Giving new authors the chance to be heard is something we love doing, and the enthusiasm for the publication was infectious on the night.
Helping launch the event was Monash Councillor Lynnette Saloumi. Pictured here with the Chair of the Monash Writers Group, Robert New and again with the contributors to the anthology.
This anthology involved each writer taking the first line of a story they like and using it as the starting point for a new tale. Some lines are famous, others obscure, but the works they have inspired are original and entertaining. From historical fiction, drama, science fiction, mystery, adventure and literary there is a story in this collection for every reader.
