Stung Flash-Fiction Contest — Finalists!

Fiona doesn’t remember going to sleep. When she finally wakes up—five years later—she doesn’t find a handsome prince hovering above her. Instead, she finds her home completely abandoned and her neighborhood deserted. And what’s the deal with the strange tattoo on her arm.

Inspired by Stung by Bethany Wiggins—a dystopian re-telling of Sleeping Beauty—we challenged you to a five-day flash-fiction contest. Figment editors read all your futuristic entries and we are now pleased to announce the ten finalists that will be sent to Bethany Wiggins for judging.
