Divergent: What’s Your Faction? Writing Contest

Today is an exciting day for our May Book of the Month … not only are we announcing this month’s contest, BUT … Divergent by Veronica Roth is now in stores!!! Yes, sir, you can now pop into your local book store and snatch up your very own, finished copy of Divergent. And we highly recommend that you do. This is one of the best books of the year so-far, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on everything it holds in store.

But here at Novel Novice, we’re also giving you a chance to win a finished copy of the book, thanks to our friends at HarperTeen. Keep reading for the details of this month’s writing contest:

The Contest:

In Divergent, everyone at the age of 16 must choose to join one of five factions within their society:

* Abnegation, the selfless
* Erudite, the intelligent
* Dauntless, the brave
* Amity, the peaceful
* Candor, the honest

So for this month’s contest, we want you to tell us: Which faction would YOU choose to join & why?

Now, don’t worry if you haven’t read Divergent and aren’t sure what all these factions really mean. All next week, we’ll be focusing on each faction (one per day), to help you learn more and make your choice. And for fun, you can also take the “faction” quiz on Facebook, created by HarperTeen!

Once you’ve decided, just fill out the Novel Novice Divergent Contest Entry Form, telling us your choice in 150-300 words. Winners will be chosen based on quality of these entries!

The Prizes:

Five (5) winners will each receive a finished copy of Divergent, courtesy of HarperTeen & temporary tattoos based on the factions in the book!

The Rules:

  • U.S. only
  • Use proper grammar & spelling
  • Entries should be 150-300 words in length
  • One entry per person
  • Use the contest entry form

The Deadline:

All entries are due by midnight (PT) on Tuesday, May 31st.

Questions? Leave ’em in the comments & we’ll reply!

  1. What a great contest! 🙂 I LOVED Divergent, and the different factions are so interesting by themselves. I wish I could participate… but I’m Canadian. LOL x)

    Do you think I could write a response just for fun? Even though I know I wouldn’t be entered in the draw for a prize, I think really cool to pick a faction! 🙂

  2. I love all of your contests because they require people to THINK and WRITE! I teach middle school writing and I appreciate it! Thanks for the contest!!

  3. These are my favorite types of contests!!! I adore them because you actually have to do something and write!! So much better then just an entry form where you do nothing! It gives people a chance to be creative and explore and analyze their mind!<3 Thanks!

  4. Does Puerto Rico count as a U.S mailing address? I’ve been told yes, but I wanted to confirm with you guys. I’m still submitting my entry, just in case 😉

  5. Thanks so much for the chance to win this book; I’ve wanted to read it for so long now! And I love the prompt for the contest. It was really fun to enter 🙂

  6. I am really excited to see if I won! I have a copy of the book already, but my nephew spilled syrup all over it so I’m hoping to win this one =).

    1. We’ll announce the winners on our blog. But give us a couple weeks to read through all the entries — there were a lot of them! 🙂
