Where your own character is placed into a drawing, with a chance to be selected as tribute in the Annual Hunger Games, and where your writing ability is all you have to keep them alive...

THIS IS A COMPETITION BASED ON WRITING ABILITY, INSPIRED BY "THE WRITER GAMES" COMPETITION CREATED BY FELLOW FIGMENT USER, TABBATHA BARNS. :)

PLEASE READ THE RULES AND OTHER DISCUSSIONS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE AFTER READING THIS. ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED THERE IS IMPORTANT! THANK YOU! ~ Lauren Michelle :)

Welcome Tributes and Viewers of the Annual Hunger Games!

THE FIRST WRITING FIRE VICTOR HAS EMERGED AS OF DECEMBER 2013!

The head Gamemakers would love to congratulate Figment writer LIZ DOUITSIS as the first winner of our beta round, the 70th Annual Hunger Games!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

This is the chance for you to show off your fabulous writing skills, as well as become a part of something that will hopefully transform into an epic battle between Figment users around the world. As you begin to write your way through an arena filled with twists, turns, and fellow tributes (as well as a few nasty surprises of our own), your writing skills might just make the difference between seeing your tribute fall to the merciless clutches of death and seeing them emerge as victor. 

There is just one twist: your tribute, just as in The Hunger Games,  must be selected randomly through a drawing.

THE SUBMISSION PERIOD FOR THE 71th HUNGER GAMES HAS ENDED & THE CONTESTANTS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!

Congratulations to our newest competitors!

Information about the tributes, the writers, and the schedule for this competition can be found in the appropriate discussion threads at the bottom of the page. :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

As the competition progresses be sure to do the following:

       - Read all the discussion threads, ESPECIALLY THE THREAD TITLED: "MUST READ: CONTEST INFORMATION." Each and every piece of information we give you is important and meant to assist you in keeping your tribute alive during the Games.

       - CHECK OUT The 70th ANNUAL HUNGER GAMES book on our Writing Fire Profile Page! Here you will read the novel the contestants created for our first contest, and further familiarize yourself with how this competition works.

       - FOLLOW the 71st ANNUAL HUNGER GAMES book on our Writing Fire Profile Page! Every two weeks the contestants will submit their next chapters and after a few days these chapters will be published in the book!

       - If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask by either emailing the group's email below, or by posting your questions in the appropriate discussion thread!

        - BEAR IN MIND THIS IS A WRITING CONTEST! Your tribute will survive the Games based solely on your writing skills, which includes creativity, proper grammar, and proper formatting.  If you feel you do not excel in all these categories, it would be in your best interest to brush up on some reading about how to format a narrative story.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

We are still working out some of the details, so we may not have answers for all of your questions at this point, but will be update you with the latest information when we can. Our goal is to make this as fun as possible for everyone, so if you have any suggestions, you can submit them in the suggestions discussion.  

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

IMPORTANT NOTE: We also ask that you please refrain from adding your own books to the group, seeing as Writing Fire is one all the contestants shall create together.  :) Thanks bunches!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
