Burned Short-Story Contest Winners

Inspired by the Caribbean disaster that befalls the Pretty Little Liars gang in Burned by Sara Shepard, we asked you to write a story about a group of friends who are having fun . . . until danger strikes! And you sure came up with some wild calamities! You wrote and voted, and the Figment editors chose our favorite five stories from the top 50 most-hearted entries to send to Sara Shepard for judging! Today, we’re pleased to announce the winners of this contest.

Check out the winners and Sara’s comments below, and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!


Grand Prize

Congratulations, Kapo! You will receive a signed copy of Burned (Pretty Little Liars Book 12) by Sara Shepard, Pretty Little Liars: The Complete First and Second Seasons on DVD, and a $25 Amazon gift card.

Sara says: “This story hooked me right away because I was wondering why they were hanging out in an old warehouse—the setting seemed bleak, dystopian, and mysterious. It’s great how quickly we got into the suspense, and the dialogue and action was gripping and true. Loved the end moment, too! “

Second Place

Well done, Magnum! You will receive a signed copy Burned (Pretty Little Liars Book 12) and Pretty Little Liars: The Complete First and Second Seasons on DVD.

Sara says: I love friend sleepover moments. I also like how they keep quiet despite feeling cold and uncomfortable—very real. And the boys in robes at the end? So mysterious!

Third Place

Awesome job, S! You will receive a signed copy of Burned.

Sara says: A romantic little tableau with a lot of winning moments. But, as I love, someone is watching, and what seems like a perfect moment becomes your worst nightmare. Bravo!
