Contest! Write your own aphorism!September 27, 2010
The National Post is offering up a challenge: write your own aphorism, a-la Glimpse, and enter for a chance to receive one of three signed copies of Glimpse!
“The slot machine is the idiot’s ATM.”
“Every crowd is a mass grave that death never visited.”
“The cat that dies is simply the cat that lost count.”
These words of wisdom are all pulled from Glimpse, the poet George Murray’s new collection of aphorisms.
We introduced you to author and book over the weekend and now we want you to come up with your own aphorisms.
E-mail your best aphorisms — a maximum of three, please — to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll select the finalists, while George Murray will pick the winners, three of whom will receive a signed copy of Glimpse.
The deadline is Friday, October 1 at 6 PM EST, and remember: “Those who do not enter cannot win.”
