Have you every dreamt of meeting your favorite author? Have you ever wanted to learn all their writing tips and secrets?

Maybe that person is Ransom Riggs! And maybe you could!

Write a short story (500-1000 words) inspired by the peculiar world of Miss Peregrine and submit it here for your chance! Ransom Riggs could come to your school or here to your library to host a writing workshop. Cool, right? The site (http://www.peculiarwriting.com/) also features writing tips and prompts and more details about the contest. It’s open until December 31st for ages 13 to 18, so I guess it’s time to get writing!

If you haven’t read any of Riggs’ books, never fear. We can help you out. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a great place to start. Once you finish that, book two, Hollow City, is waiting for you. If you’re more of an audio book listener, we have both copies on audio as well.
