Catching Fire: A Hunger Games fan fiction contest

Every Revolution Begins With a Spark...

As many of you know, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has officially been released in the UK and we couldn't be more excited. We've been waiting over a year and a half to see our favourite scenes in the capable hands of Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson and the wait is over! Whether you've read Catching Fire or not, you have to admit it's going to be awesome... and with the Movellas Hunger Games fandom, where better to celebrate? 

 

Catching Fire, the second novel in Suzanne Collins's sensational trilogy, follows on from the phenomenal The Hunger Games and finds Katniss and Peeta on their Victory Tour. It is also the story of the 75th Hunger Games, the thrid Quarter Quell. Every 25 years the Capitol holds a special Hunger Games with a twist which is called a Quarter Quell. The people of the districts had to pick their own tributes for the 25th Hunger Games and the 50th Hunger Games saw twice as many tributes enter the arena. And now the third Quarter Quell is upon us.

 

While you're finding time to watch the film, read the book or even re-read the book, how about a fan fiction competition?

 

In celebration of the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire we're giving you free reign on The Hunger Games fandom. The only conditions are that your story has to be set within Panem, cannot be more than 3,000 words and cannot be crossover fan fiction.

 

We want you to push your imaginations to the limit and go crazy with Hunger Games fever.

 

You could re-write a section of Catching Fire from a different character's point of view. You could explore the Capitol or District 1. What sort of problems would they have? Maybe a minor character has a secret story. What is Prim doing back in District 12 or what are the prep teams really worried about? Or of course you could be brave and put yourself in the arena. How would your story go?

 

So what are you waiting for? We are limiting this contest to 2 weeks, while Hunger Games fever is as its hotest, so get writing and then head back here and press the green 'Join this competition' button. Three winners will receive awesome Hunger Games merchandise and be the Movellas Featured Story for the next month. 

 

May the odds be ever in your favour...
