Megan Shepherd is hosting a really cool contest for fanfiction writers.
Calling all writers…
I’ve always been fascinated by stories-within-stories. In Grim Lovelies, the characters reference several fairy tales original to their magical world. Some are about girls trapped in towers, some are about cities cursed by a witch, but every story has one thing in common: they are unfinished.
Here’s the thing…I’m inviting my readers to participate in shaping the official lore of the Grim Lovelies world! This is your chance to have your own writing included in the Grim Lovelies fairy tale collection, “Beastie Tales.” Below are eight fairy tale prompts that are briefly mentioned in either Grim Lovelies or Midnight Beauties. It’s your turn to grow the seed of each idea into a full story.
The winners will each received a signed set of Grim Lovelies and Midnight Beauties, a swag package, and have their story included in the official fan-written digital collection “Beastie Tales”, which will be downloadable on meganshepherd.com and include a forward written by Megan Shepherd, as well as contributing author bios.
You can find the prompts and all details HERE.
Is this something that you might try? Do you write fanfiction?
