It’s the first day of spring—and we’ve got a serious case of spring fever at Figment HQ. We’re so excited for warmer weather, sunshine, longer days, blooming flowers, baseball, and the promise that summer is not so very far off.
To celebrate, we’re hosting a short-story contest!
In 250 words or fewer, write a story that’s set in springtime. Tag your story SpringFlash. You have until Friday, March 29 at 11:59 p.m. ET to enter a story.
Figment editors will be reading all the entries. One grand-prize winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card, a super secret surprise book, and a chance to choose the Figment homepage stories for one day.
Four runners-up will each receive a super secret surprise book. All five winning stories will be featured on the Figment homepage.
