LAT Storytelling Experiment

Yesterday the LA Times ran the first chapter in a serial fiction project. It’s a story written in short installments, each by a different author. The tale is called “Money Walks” and it will be published in the Calendar section six times a week, with the conclusion coming April 24. Contributing writers include Mary McNamara, Seth Greenland, Marisa Silver, Aimee Bender, Denise Hamilton and Jerry Stahl. It’s an interesting mash-up of literary voices, and we look forward to following the resulting work.
