NPR’s got a new short story contest worth writing about: “At NPR, we love to hear, and tell, your real-life stories every day. Now, we want to hear your fiction as well. This summer, we’re beginning a contest called “Three-Minute Fiction.” The premise is simple: Listeners send in original short stories that can be read in three minutes or less — that’s usually about 500-600 words long.”
Read the rest, listen to a sample short story, check and the rules and submit your piece at the NPR site.
I’ve got a few story ideas mulling around … maybe I’ll let mine out, too!
