The winner will also have their story turned into a digital short

Based on Lev Grossman's best-selling books, The Magicians starts in Brakebills University, a secret institution specializing in magic. There, amidst an unorthodox education of spellcasting, a group of twenty-something friends soon discover that a magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real- and poses grave danger to humanity.
The #BattleTheBeast contest on Wattpad challenges entrants to create an original 1,500 word story describing a battle between the series protagonists and it’s mysterious villain, The Beast. To submit, tag your Wattpad story with #BattleTheBeast and share a link to your finished work in the comment section of this story.
Ten finalists will have their stories reviewed by Syfy’s judging panel that includes the series creator, Lev Grossman! The winner will be announced on February 23rd, 2017.
Get your submissions in by February 8th for your chance to win. Those looking for inspiration may be glad to hear that season two of The Magicians airs Wednesdays on Syfy.
