We hope you’ll join us this Thursday, April 10 in New York City for a high-energy event with The Hired Guns, a company that’s a cross between the coolest headhunter for creative types ever and a top marketing shop, founded by my pal Allison Hemming. Rachel and I will talk about the making of a crowdsourced book, read some of our favorite six-worders, and hold a six-word slam. One brave mini-memoirist will shuffle out into the night a new iPod. Your $20 gets you: in the door, a signed copy of Not Quite What I Was Planning, and all the wine you can drink (everyone is welcome to hang out for drinks after the six-word slam). Allison says she expects this event to sellout, so we suggest registering ahead of time. I’ll put the first person who is not currently a SMITH community member on the guest list who: 1) signs up to be a community member (free, of course); 2) creates a profile with a photo or other image; 3) writes a six-word memoir; 4) adds the tag hiredguns (no space) so I know how to find you.
