Greetings my loyal Figsubjects,
In honor of her royal highness, Shannon Hale – SHANNON HALE, GUYS! – and her fairy tale books Princess Academy and Book of a Thousand Days (which you can begin reading on Figment) we’re hosting the Let Them Eat Figs Contest. Write us a short story, no more than 1500 words, about a prince or princess – anything about a prince or princess. From Kate Middleton to Cinderella, from Prince Harry to The Artist Formerly Known As Prince, we love ’em all, and we want to read what you want to write about these regal throne-sitters. See the entrance rules below. Let them eat figs!
How to enter:
–Read the full rules
-Create a new writing

The 15 top hearted entries will become finalists, and finalists will be judged by yours truly, the figment mod squad.
