Of the entries, Kevin said:

A HUGE congratulations to everyone for writing such brilliant stories. They were all magnificent, all full of great ideas, and it was really hard to pick a winner. But in the end I’ve chosen Sarah K’s “The Death of a Human.” Well done, Sarah! I absolutely loved your story. It’s a wonderful idea, beautifully written, and it has a lovely sadness to it that’s very, very moving. I almost cried at the end, and—for me—that’s always the sign of good story.

Well done again. And thanks again to all at Figment. Keep it up!

Bye for now.


 All winners will receive copies of iBoy. Sarah K and Elizaveta will also receive iTunes gift cards, and Amber Jones will receive a Figment tote. Thanks to everyone who entered!
