Winners of the Rootless Weekend Flash-Fiction Contest!

As a tree builder, Banyan uses scrap metal to construct gorgeous makeshift forests for rich patrons who want to escape the barren landscape. But the inspiration for his creations is drawn purely from stories and descriptions passed down to him by his father. Banyan lives in a dismal world devoid of nature; real trees haven’t grown in years.

Inspired by the desolate world in Rootless by Chris Howard, we challenged you to weekend of futuristic world-building. Today, we’re pleased to announce the contest winners.

Check out the winning entries below, and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!




Congratulations, everyone! You will each receive a copy of Rootless by Chris Howard and your story will be featured on the Figment homepage today, March 25!
