Season Four Contestants, Revealed!

  • Untitled Icon-founder Ellie Williams

    *throws confetti everywhere*

    It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here! I’ve been sitting on this information for a few days now, but I finally get to reveal it! Before we get any further, I need to send out the sincerest thank you to everyone who auditioned this season. We have never had a bigger turn out in our history, and it makes me sad to have to turn away as many as I do. If I had the extra spare time, I would accept you all. The reality is that I barely have time for what I’m taking on now, so unfortunately, parameters must be set and upheld.

    As you know, we will be accepting twenty contestants into our competition season. At least, that was the plan. During our decision-making week, we judges had a difficult time narrowing it down to a top twenty. We debated, argued, and fought for our favorite contestants but ultimately could not make a unanimous decision. Because of that, we have extended our competition to include twenty-one authors. It’s not a huge difference, granted, but it’s significant enough.

    If you do not make it in this season, do not despair! It was super, super competitive this go-around. So many incredible, talented people auditioned, and I had a blast reading each and every entry. Stick around, follow along, and write your own version of the prompts as the competition goes along. Prepare for another season down the road or maybe just do it to write. And keep checking back in the group. You never know what sorts of surprises may pop up.

    All right, I think I’ve held you in suspense long enough (if you haven’t already jumped down to search for your name--cheaters). Without further delay, I’d like to welcome our top twenty-one writers into Figgy Idol’s fourth season:

    (in alphabetical order)

    • Abigail June
    • Adrianne Etheridge
    • Ducky
    • Elizabeth
    • Emma
    • Hannah E.

    • Rachel Rauch
    • Sekerya Mackenzie

    Again, if you did not make it, do not let it discourage you. Keep writing! Never give up.
