This Contest is CLOSED
We’re looking for all and any previously unpublished short stories. To help preserve the sight of the poor souls who have ‘volunteered’ to read all your fab entries, we ask that you keep to a maximum of 1000 words. The stories must be in the young adult fantasy genre so no crazy violence or sleazy erotic please. No fan fiction or references in any way to the Wicked Lovely series.
Three stories will be published on this site, with big shiny links letting everyone know where to find them and telling everyone how great you are. The overall winner will received a personalized signed copy of Wicked Lovely sent to you by Melissa Marr. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to receive something personalized from a New York Times Best Selling Author.
Okay – now the small print:
