Winners of the And I Darken Writing Competition

Your stories have all been read - now see the winning entries!


This competition was launched in partnership with Penguin and Movellas in celebration of Kiersten White's newest novel, And I Darken. The fast-paced feminist epic had it's own kick-ass heroine and a killer plot involving love, death, and revenge.​ This time we challenged our movellians to write their own stories with kick-ass heroines! 


Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to participate in this amazing competition! Winners will receive win £100 of YA books plus a copy of AND I DARKEN. Here are the winners of the competition, chosen by author Kiersten White :)
