Thanks to all who entered, everyone who voted for semi-finalists, and to all of our finalists! Blake Nelson, author of Recovery Road (the story that inspired the prompt), has chosen Laura Forysthe as the winner of the Recovery Contest. Her entry was Recoverup. Congrats, Laura!
The runner-up was Recovery from Haley by Tandice Kelly.
Thanks, everyone! And remember, everyone who sent us an entry can now publish those entries on Figment.
<!–more Read contest description–>
Write a short story or poem of 1300 words or fewer with the theme “recovery.” That’s pretty broad, so take it and run!
This contest is in honor of our new Figment Feature, Recovery Road by Blake Nelson. Which I think looks like a pretty awesome book, by the way, and I’m not just saying that. It’s raw and unapologetic.
As always, we look for creativity, originality, and, of course, writing style.
How to enter:
-Email your entry in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Follow Recovery Contest on Figment
As always, no contest promotion anywhere on Figment. To ensure the blind voting isn’t compromised, please refrain from posting your entry on Figment until the winner is announced.
Entries are due by Saturday, March 19th at 9 PM EST. On Wednesday (3/23), we will have the finalists on the blog for a round of blind voting to determine the winner. The winner will receive a copy of Blake Nelson’s Recovery Road and Girl, a batch of owl notebooks (notebooks with owls on them, bursting with gender-neutral adorableness), some Figment swag, and will be featured in our blog and newsletter. Good luck, all!
