Beatrice Bernstein, the main character in Nora Zelevansky’s new novel, Semi-Charmed Life, has never felt like she fit in with the rest of her family. Inspired by Beatrice’s outsider status, we challenged you to write a story where the main character is radically different from the people around him or her. Even though the entry period has ended, you get to help pick the winner. Now it’s the time for you to make sure your favorites stand out by voting in the Semi-Charmed Life short story contest!
Voting will run until 5 p.m. ET on Monday, July 23. Nora Zelevansky, the author of Semi-Charmed Life, will choose a winner from the top-voted finalists.
First prize winner will receive a copy of Semi-Charmed Life, an advanced reader copy of Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones (not out until October!), and a copy of The Demon Trapper’s Daughter by Jana Oliver.
Third prize winner will receive a copy of Semi-Charmed Life.
So what are you waiting for? Get voting!
