We're thrilled today to bring you the very first YA Flash Death Match! You will have until Tuesday, July 13th at 12 noon CST to post your name and topic here. Every person who posts a topic will be automatically entered to compete in the first YA Flash Death Match. If you would like to contribute a topic, but would NOT like to be considered for the competition, please start your post with 'NOT COMPETING' so we know to exclude you.
Those of you not chosen for the competition or those that are just contributing a topic, will be eligible for the 3 bookmark gift packs from Author Leah Cypess. These three prizes, plus the winning topic and prize winner, as well as the first 2 contestants will be announced on Wednesday, July 14th. Contestants will have until July 20th to email us their completed Flash, a piece of writing of no more than 1,000 words. It can be a complete story OR a scene, and please be sure it's for a YA audience.
As for topics, you can enter something like 'Paranormal Romance' or even be more specific, like 'zombies riding unicorns to the grocery store.' We're looking forward to some extremely creative writing!
