Whether you’re heartbroken or head over heels, Valentine’s Day tends to stir up a lot of strong feelings. Especially when you’re in high school. We get it and we’re here to help. Whatever strong sentiment the Hallmark holiday brings up about relationships past, present and fictional, SMITHTeens want to hear about it! In fact, we’re joining forces with our friends at teen fiction hub Figment.com to give teens the chance to say it in six, share the backstory and potentially win a spot in SMITH and Figment’s amazing LIVE Valentine’s Day show in New York alongside stars of the NYC storytelling scene!
How do they enter? Easy! Teens can submit their stories in two ways:
- Go to Figment.com and write a story of 500 words or less about a relationship starting or a relationship ending.
**Important Note:** Make sure your story title on Figment is the same as your six-word love letter or six-word breakup letter on SMITHTeens. Your two pieces should be related in some way. They can be about a real relationship you’ve had or witnessed, or they can be about a fictional relationship.
Submit your entries on both sites by Sunday, Feb 4th (11:59 pm est), and you could win the opportunity to read both of your pieces live or via video at our amazing Valentine’s Day event “It’s Like My Heart Has Sciatica” SMITH Mag’s Annual Love & Heartbreak Story Show in New York on February 14th.
