Collaborate with La Cieca

It's easy to be La Cieca's co-writer!  Just fill in the form below.  For example, for "Name of an opera house" you might choose "The Met" or "La Scala" -- or something sillier.  When you've filled in all the blanks, hit the "Submit" button.  You will then be able to read the completed "Mad Lib" style article, and, if you like, forward the result to La Cieca. [From the finished Mad Lib page, scroll down to Direct link (filled), click on "select all," copy, and then paste into an email and send it to La Cieca.]

The best five submissions will be published on the parterre.com website and the "co-authors" will receive a gift of an historical opera DVD selected  by La Cieca. Of course La Cieca's decisions in this matter are all utterly whimsical and arbitrary ... and final.

Enjoy, cher public!
