The Sweetest Dark Flash-Fiction Contest Winners!

Lora Jones doesn’t remember a time in her childhood outside of living in the Blisshaven Foundling Home. She seems like any other orphan at the home until she is transferred to the Iverson boarding school. With the help of two young men, Lora discovers she is anything but ordinary.

Inspired by The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abé, we challenged you to write a story about an orphan. You wrote, Figment editors read all the entries, and we sent our top ten favorites to Shana for judging. Now, we’re please to announce the contest winners!

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





Congrats! You will each receive a copy of The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abé, Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, and Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay.
