One Story is a top-tier literary journal celebrating the best in short stories, novel excepts, and stories for teens (One Teen Story). Once a year, they celebrate the authors coming out with a debut novel who have appeared in their journal – it’s a big arse Brooklyn-style party and tickets are selling fast.
Not only does this party sound super fun, but the One Story folks are some of the nicest, most accessible people I have met. This an amazing opportunity to have a blast while meeting some of the most influential people in the literary world. Wowza!
