Vote in the Magisterium Short-Story Contest

One day, Glenn is certain magic doesn’t exist. But the next, her father is arrested, and Glenn and her friend Kevin are forced to flee across the Rift and into an unknown land. On the other side they discover an amazing world they never expected—the Magisterium—and Glenn is forced to reexamine her beliefs. Maybe magic really does exist?

Inspired by the magical world of Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch, we challenged you to write a story about the day a character discovers their Affinity. In the Magisterium, magic is referred to as Affinity. Someone with an Affinity has a close spiritual relationship to something in the environment. It can be anything: fire, water, the moon, an animal, etc. Whatever a person’s Affinity is, they are able to commune with it and control it.

The entry period has closed, but now you have a chance to help chose the 10 most-hearted finalists that will be sent to Jeff Hirsch for judging. Voting will run until Wednesday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m. ET. so get voting now!

The grand-prize winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card and signed copies of Magisterium and The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch.

The second-prize winner will receive a $10 Amazon gift card and a signed copy of Magisterium.

The third-prize winner will receive a signed copy of Magisterium.
