Realistic Magic: Shana Abe Writing Challenge Winners!


The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe

Shana Abé has a lot of experience writing about magic. Her bestselling Drakon series was all about dragons and shape-shifters. And her new YA novel, The Sweetest Dark, features a heroine with her own magical powers.

We talked to Shana about how to create magical characters that feel real. Inspired by Shana’s tips, we challenged you to write a character sketch that explains your character’s magic skills and the price she or he must pay in order to use them. You wrote believable stories and we are now happy to announce the winners!

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






Congratulations! Your story will be featured on the Figment homepage on Friday, June 14!
