Scary Story Flash-Fiction Contest Winners!


Dark and creepy woods.

Monsters under the bed . . .

. . . and in the closet.

Being buried alive.

These are just a few things that scare you Figs (and the Fig editors). Surprisingly, no one is afraid of clowns. (Fig editors think they’re pretty creepy, though!) We had a whopping 408 entries in the Scary Story Flash-Fiction contest. And, maybe the most frightening thing about the contest was trying to narrow down the best to choose just five winners.

But, we survived (even though we’re definitely sleeping with the lights on tonight!) and we’re pleased to announce the contest winners.

Check out the scary stories below. And be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!

Well done, everyone! Your stories will appear on the Figment homepage on Monday, October 21 for 24 hours.
