Word Sale!

One-Story-Deb-Ball-201327Many people have been emailing us about the Word Sale that we hosted at our Debutante Ball last Thursday. For those of you who couldn’t join us, you are in LUCK: we still have some words left for sale. A slideshow is embedded below, along with a list of words, prices & their respective authors. Each Word was generously donated, and comes ready to be framed, with a special card that includes a definition and a SECRET SENTENCE written by the author. If you’re interested in purchasing a word to support One Story, please contact Adina Talve-Goodman at: Adina@one-story.com. Thank you! And remember: One Story is a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit, and your word will be fully-tax-deductible. Your donation will also help us in our mission: to celebrate the art form of the short story and support the writers who write them.
