As part of our book of the month feature on Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (in stores in just 21 days!!), we’re giving you a chance to put your creative writing skills to good use. And since Sweetly and the companion novel Sisters Red are both modernized twists on classic fairy tales, that’s where we’re drawing our inspiration for this month’s contest!
Choose on of your favorite fairy tales, and write the beginnings of a modernized twist on the classic story. Choose anything from Cinderella, Snow White or Sleeping Beauty to Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs, or Thumbelina. Any fairy tale is up for grabs!
Submit the first 250-500 words of your story in our Sweetly Contest Entry Form.
Three (3) winners will each receive a finished copy of Sweetly and a Sweetly lollipop, courtesy of Little Brown.
