At this year’s Literary Debutante Ball, on May 22nd in Brooklyn, supporters of One Story will have the chance to take home handwritten advice from their favorite authors!
Over 30 authors have “donated” handwritten and personally signed advice, framed and ready to hang over your writing desk for inspiration.
Donate on the night of the ball, and leave with advice from: George Saunders, John Green, Ann Patchett, Roxanne Gay, Jonathan Franzen, Lydia Davis, Teju Cole, Meg Wolitzer, Pam Houston, Andre Dubus III, Walter Mosley, Michael Cunningham, Susan Minot, Dani Shapiro, Colson Whitehead and many more!
We’ll also have framed advice available from your favorite “classic” authors, such as Franz Kafka, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Virginia Woolf, Agatha Christie, James Baldwin, Raymond Carver and Zora Neale Hurston.
And back by popular demand, our cigarette girls from last year’s party will be returning, hawking the one thing no writer can do without: PUNCTUATION!
Advice and punctuation will be given for donations of $20-$250. All proceeds will go toward One Story’s mission: to celebrate the art form of the short story and support the writers who write them. Tickets are almost sold out! Buy yours today.
