Short Story Contest

Has everyone heard of the fantastic writing community known as Figment? You can share your love of reading and writing with others, get feedback for your writing and critique others. They also have contests every now and then. As an aspiring writer, I decided to enter the Dystopian contest in conjunction with Lauren Oliver. My story is called "The Bodyguard" and if you're interested, you can read it here. If you like it, I'd really appreciate it if you would "heart" me and/or comment as I could do with the feedback. I'm not sure if this helps in winning or whether it's entirely up to the judges but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

If you want to enter the contest yourself, you only have until 9pm EST TODAY (which I think is about 2am UK time). The link is here. Even if you're not entering, I would still recommend you check the site out.


  1. Great job on the story, Lynsey! And good luck. Got my fingers crossed for you!

  2. I read it and it fantastic. Well done. Good luck and have everything crossed for you. xx
