If you ask us, there’s a certain amount of poetry to great style. Hence our intrigue with the new 49words.com project from San Francisco label 49 Square Miles. Choose your 49 words right, and you could win one of the luxury handbag company’s easy-to-covet Bigmouth Hobo bags.
Launching today, the project invites submissions summing up the essence of San Francisco in exactly 49 words. Feel free to gush about the City by the Bay’s various charms in your most heartfelt stream of consciousness narrative, dazzle with your skills at iambic pentameter or conjure up a haiku or two. What you write – and how you write it – is up to you.
Entries must be posted on the 49 Square Miles Facebook fan page and will be highlighted on 49words.com. Entries will be read by the entire staff of 49 Square Miles. Their favorite will win a Bigmouth Hobo (retail $650).
Don’t think of it simply as a contest, but a chance to get creative, show your love for San Francisco and maybe win something at the same time. Says 49 Square Miles founder Lisa Rissetto:
“This is an exercise in community and poetry.”
