Inspired by Gabrielle Zevin’s novel Because It Is My Blood and the secrets Anya Balanchine must keep, we challenged you to a week of covert flash fiction. The Figment editors chose ten finalists to be sent to Gabrielle for judging. We’re now please to announce the winners of the contest! Read through the winning stories below, and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!
Gabrielle says: “Through effective use of first-person narration, the writer efficiently and vividly illustrates an important moment in a character’s life.”
The following five daily winners will each receive a signed copy of Because It Is My Blood.
Congratulations to all of the winners, and thanks to everyone who participated!
