Figment: A Literary Website for Teens

A literary website for teens called Figment went live Monday and provides an online venue for students to write, read and share original fiction they create on their computers and smart phones. A staff writer and a former editor at the New Yorker launched a prototype of the site in June, and teamed with libraries, schools and literary groups to recruit student participants.

An article in the NY Times on Sunday describes the site in greater detail.

It looks like a great place to test out your creative juices and share your passion for writing with the world.

Thanks to Lynda Lincoln for the heads up.
