Starcrossed Writing Challenge

InkPop is once again having a writing contest. But this week’s contest is for Greek mythology fans, especially those who are fond of reading about starcrossed lovers.

Helen Hamilton has always known there was something different about her, but it's not until she meets Lucas Delos that she finally realizes her destiny. Descended from Greek Gods Helen and Lucas's families have been embroiled in a deadly blood feud for centuries. Now it's up to these teens to correct the past and create their own future.

Starcrossed is a unique paranormal that leverages Greek Mythology to create a new story and world. Now it's your turn. Using folklore, greek mythology or some other historical text create a contemporary story or poem. You can turn King Arthur into a modern day football hero or Snow White can now be an independent feminist and seeker of justice. Use your imagination!

How to Enter:
Post your writing to inkpop through the standard upload process. Make sure to put the challenge ID, IC#58, in the title. Once your project is uploaded, post the project's URL link in this forum.

How many winners: Four

Prizes: Two writing winners and two commenters will be also be selected to win a copy of Starcrossed as well as three additional books of their choice from the HarperTeen catalog. Winners will be announced on inkpop Forums.
