Requiem Writing Contest

With Lauren Oliver‘s final installment of her Delirium trilogy, Requiem — releasing March 2013! — partnered up with Figment and HarperTeen to give young writers the opportunity for the series’ author to read his/her work for a chance to win the ultimate prize: a two-day trip to the HarperTeen offices in New York City and a one-year book column on!

THE CHALLENGE: Write a story in which love is dangerous (like in the Delirium trilogy).

MUST-KNOW INFO: You must be between 13 and 21 years of age to be eligible. Open only to residents of the 50 United States. Entries must be submitted by 11:59 pm on March 3, 2013. Once your story is submitted, it is considered your final, official entry. Any story that is changed after it is submitted may be subject to disqualification. The column is unpaid, but you’ll score a byline, promotion for your Figment author page AND advanced copies of YA books to review!

Lauren Oliver will read all the entries and handpick the grand-prize winner herself!

    you should start opening these contests worldwide! this one I was excited about because I read delirium before it even became huge and I think that if people all over the world are able to access this site then you should make some of these contests international as well.
