A Beautiful Evil Greek Mythology Writing Contest

Our February book of the month A Beautiful Evil by Kelly Keaton features all sorts of awesome twists on Greek mythology — so we’re using that as our inspiration for this month’s writing contest!

The Contest

The Prize

Up to four (4) winners will each receive a set of finished copies of Darkness Becomes Her and A Beautiful Evil courtesy of Simon & Schuster!

The Rules

  • U.S. only
  • One entry per person
  • Use the entry form
  • Entries should be 250-500 words in length
  • You may submit an excerpt from a longer story
  • Use proper grammar & spelling

  1. Oh, so evil! I got started and wrote a 1,200 some-odd words story and then had to chop it down to 566, and then whittle it to exactly 500. I’m not sure if I could have found another word I was willing to cut out!

    1. Well, we always say it’s okay to submit just an EXCERPT if your story is longer than 500 words! 🙂

  2. Hi there, I was wondering when the winners of this contest, ditched, and the hunger games contests might be announced. I know this one ended at the end of february and I was just wondering. Thanks for all the great contests. I love this site!
