Compulsion Writing Challenge

Hi everyone, I have a last minute contest update for you! This one is for readers and writers who like psychological books.

Author Heidi Ayarbe is the acclaimed author of Freeze Frame and Compromised. In her third book, Compulsion, she tells the story of a seventeen-year-old boy living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. So what does it take to write from the opposite perspective? Take a chance and find out.

What to Do:
Write a story, poem or essay that explores looking at the world through a perspective other than your own. Like Heidi you can write from the POV of the opposite gender or you can look at the world as an animal would see it. The possibilities are endless.

Author Heidi Ayarbe will select two writing winners to receive her new book Compulsion as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen. Two comment winners will be selected at random to win a copy of Compulsion as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen.

How to Enter The Compulsion Writing Challenge:
 Post your writing to inkpop through the standard upload process. Make sure to put the challenge ID, IC#61, in the title. Once your project is uploaded, post the project's URL link IN THIS FORUM.

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

  1. Damn it! Why didn't I saw this contest earlier. I began imagining what I would say if I'm a bird. Then I saw the deadline and it was the world hate. Well, maybe next time :))
