This contest has a simple premise: Listeners send in original short stories that can be read in three minutes or less. NPR is posting favorite entries every week until The New Yorker’s James Wood picks the winning story and reads it on the air.
Writing contestants must start this round of entries with the following sentence:
“The nurse left work at five o’clock.”
