Be Read By the Best

posted by on December 1 at 16:43 PM

So You Wanna Be a Writer: Everything you’ll need to begin your career as a professional scribbler (social awkwardness and self-loathing not included). Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, will read and critique 3,000 words of your opus. Richard Hugo House will waive tuition to a class of your choice (and the price of one stiff drink at their bar). Plus, a $30 gift certificate to Epilogue Books, a literary CD combo (featuring sea shanties sung by Nick Cave, Bryan Ferry, et al., and plague songs by Stephin Merritt, Rufus Wainwright, et al.) and a case of Solaris wine, just in case you want to drink yourself to death! Priceless! Opening bid: $1.99.

(By the way, Absurdistan made the New York Times’s top ten books of 2006. Congratulations, Mr. Shteyngart.)

Now please enjoy this:


Très romantique.
