Divergent Writing Challenge

For those of you who haven’t read Divergent yet, haven’t picked it up, and haven’t gotten the chance to buy it…this is your chance to win Divergent.

Honest, Brave, Selfless, Peaceful or True, those are the only type of people you can be in the world of DIVERGENT and you can only be ONE! So what happens when a character, like Beatrice Prior, finds themselves embodying more than one of these persona? Who are you when you are not what society expects you to be?

What to Do: Write a short story or poem that explores a character that does not quite fit into the world around them. Like Divergent you can create a dystopian environment where everyone is supposed to act a certain way or you can explore a world much closer to your own, like a high school where someone just doesn't quite fit in.

Two writing winners, selected by author Veronica Roth, will receive a free copy of DIVERGENT as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen. Two comment winners will be selected at random to win a copy of DIVERGENT as well as three books of their choice from HarperTeen.

How to Enter the Divergent Writing Challenge: Post your writing to inkpop through the standard upload process. Make sure to put the challenge ID, IC#63, 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 DIVERGENT as well as three additional books of their choice from the HarperTeen catalog. Winners will be announced here on inkpop Forums.
