In Veronica Wolff’s Isle of Night—which you can begin reading on Figment here—a group of girls is brought together on a deserted island, where they must battle each other to the death. And you thought your high school cafeteria was catty. We’re hosting a contest inspired by this creepycool premise, so sharpen your figpencils and get ready!
Your task is to write a story, 1200 words or fewer, in which your character is trapped on an island…and he/she’s not alone. Is your character stuck with a useless baby? A sword-wielding enemy? A love interest (or two)? You tell us!
How to Enter:
1. Read the full contest rules
2. Write your entry
3. On the “Details” tab, in the “Tags” box, put: IsleofNight
4. Press “Publish Now”
5. In about two hours or so, your contest entry will appear by clicking the link below.
The deadline for entries is Tuesday, September 20 at 6pm EST. Then you get to decide the top stories by hearting your favorite entries before Monday, September 26 at 6pm EST. Your beloved figjudges will choose a winner out of the top ten most hearted entries. The winner will receive a copy of Isle of Night, retractable vampire fangs, and this sweet bookmark. Good luck, figs!
