You can’t beat a classic story, but these Figment users re-wrote one! Figment and Justine Magazine challenged you to write a short story modernizing any classic work of literature. (Is anyone else wondering what Huck Finn would be like today?) We’re thrilled to announce the 21 semi-finalists, who will be narrowed down to five finalists by the Justine editorial team. Those five finalists will be sent to Amanda Hocking (author of the new novel Wake), who will choose the winner and two runners-up. Check out their stories and wish your fellow Figs good luck!
The winner will receive an awesome e-book reader—and will become a published author when her story appears in Justine Magazine in the October/November 2012 issue. The runners-up will also be featured in the issue and will receive a backpack filled with the latest YA books!
NOTE: Due to an error in our vote tallying process, we have named one extra semifinalist.
