Hey Figlets! Me again. And some of you have been up to no good since the last time we talked. Don’t try and deny it; I can see everything. You can’t keep secrets.
Speaking of secrets, I’m here to let you know that you have the chance to get your story read by the woman who weaves our careful web of lies, deception, and—let’s face it—killer heels. She puts the “cute” in “Imacuteveryone” and the “classy” in “I’ll kick you straight in the classy.” Yes, you have a chance to get your story read by none other than Sara Shepard (author of the Pretty Little Liars series), queen of all things pretty, little, and liar-y. She created Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer, and their twisted, mysterious frenemy A—who happens to be one of my closest friends.
In addition to getting your writing scoped by a pro author, you can win signed copies of the newest Liars books, Ruthless and Pretty Little Secrets (which you can start reading here on Figment). But you’re not in it for the material prizes, are you? Of course not…
Your challenge, if you can handle it: Write a story about a group that has a secret in no more than 1,500 words.
How To Enter:
1. Read the full rules here.
2. Create an account on Figment.com.
3. Start a new writing. Your entry must be 1,500 words or fewer.
4. Tag that writing with secretscontest on the Details tab.
5. Press “Publish Now.”
6. You should receive a pop-up confirmation of your entry, and in about two hours or so, your piece should appear among the submissions.
You have until 11:59 p.m. EST on January 16 to enter. Voting runs until 11:59 p.m EST on January 23, at which point the ten most-hearted entries will be sent to Sara Shepard who will choose the two winners. Both winners will receive signed copies of Ruthless and Pretty Little Secrets, and first place will also receive a Figment tee-shirt.
Until we meet again, I’ll be keeping an eye on you.
