DEFY THE DARK Contest - Get Published!

So, remember a few months ago when I said there was a chance for YOU to be published in the upcoming HarperTeen anthology along with me and a bunch of amazing YA authors? Well, the contest has gone live!

Head over to to enter and for all the official details, but here are the basics.

  • You have until September 1st, 2012 to write and upload a 2000-4000 word short story to Figment.
  • The story should take place at night or in the dark. BE CREATIVE with this! It doesn't have to be dark and scary. A girl sneaking out at night to meet her secret crush fits just as well as those creepy things that go bump in the night.
  • The winner will get paid and have their story published in DEFY THE DARK!
  • Two second place winners will also win cash prizes from HarperCollins and have their stories published on the Defy The Dark website.

Here are the authors appearing in DEFY THE DARK:

  • Sarah Rees Brennan
  • Tessa Gratton
  • Rachel Hawkins
  • Christine Johnson
  • Malinda Lo
  • Myra McEntire
  • Saundra Mitchell
  • Sarah Ockler
  • Jackson Pearce
  • Aprilynne Pike
  • Dia Reeves
  • Beth Revis
  • Carrie Ryan
  • Jon Skovron
  • Courtney Summers
  • Me(!)
  • ... and YOU?

So what are you waiting for? START WRITING!!
