Open to any and all who love a good sentence challenge!
Ninetieth birthdays are cause for celebration and literary 90ths are no different. With the 90th issue of Geist on the horizon, we've decided to mark the occasion in a decidedly literary way: with a sentence invitational! All are welcome!
How it works:
1) Create a five word sentence, or sentence equivalent.*
2) The first letter of each word should spell GEIST, an anagram if you will. What does this mean? The first word must start with the letter 'G,' the second with the letter 'E,' the third with the letter 'I,' the fourth with the letter 'S,' and the fifth with the letter 'T.' Add punctuation as the spirit moves you.
Geist exceeds intellectual standards totally!
Geist exists in space-time.
Geist: Excellent in some toilets.
3) The sentence should reflect one's feelings about Geist. Congratulatory messages of a birthday nature are welcome.
4) Send us your sentence(s). (You can send as many sentences as you have the capacity to write.)
