Have you heard about Figment?

The lit­er­ary com­mu­ni­ty site for teens just launched yes­ter­day and is what The New York Times describes as an exper­i­ment in online lit­er­a­ture, a free plat­form for young peo­ple to read and write fic­tion, both on their com­put­ers and on their cell­phones. Users are invit­ed to write nov­els, short sto­ries and poems, col­lab­o­rate with oth­er writ­ers and give and receive feed­back on the work post­ed on the site.”
