Writing Opportunity for New YA Writers

What happens in the dark? Why are things different at night? Maybe it’s magic, or madness or both. A new anthology coming Summer 2013 from HarperTeen, Defy the Dark explores those questions and invites you to try your hand at answering them.

HarperTeen and Figment are joining forces in a new contest for new writers.  If you’re 13 or older and live in the US or Canada (excluding Quebec), you could win the chance to publish alongside professionals in a new YA anthology of short fiction.

Your short story can be in any genere but it must be between 2000-4000 words and it must take place at night or in the dark. You can write in any genre: contemporary, paranormal, horror, science fiction, romance, humor, fantasy, etc.

The Promotion began on August 1, 2012 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on September 1, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Entry Period”) so don’t delay.

Be sure to check the official website for exact contest rules.
