Nearly ten years ago, the horrific terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 rocked New York City and the world. Those acts were bred from intolerance and hate; today, as the ten year anniversary of 9/11 draws near, we celebrate acceptance and the value of walking a mile in someone else’s shoes. MTV and Figment have teamed up to bring you a contest that encourages storytelling, creativity, and tolerance.

Your task: Create a story with three elements: a character another writer created, a setting another writer created, and a situation where someone must deal with intolerance.

Top three winners receive Ipads and are featured on MTV's Act Blog and on Figment.



There's no entry fee but you have to be a member of Figment.com, which is free anyway. It seems really cool and I hope we have some YWS entries!

I am nothing
but a mouthful of 'sorry's, half-hearted
apologies that roll of my tongue, smoothquick, like 'r's
or maybe like pocket candy
that's just a bit too sweet.

I totally just read that email. I think I might try it. :D
There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people:
psychopaths and mystery writers.

I'm the kind that pays better.
