NPR: Three Minute Fiction

NPR -- Three Minute Fiction





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.”

      Actually, a note saying this round of story-making is now closed would also be a very good thing. 🙂
      (Bits of some of the stories submitted can be seen at the link I posted.) According to the info the NPR site, a few thousand submissions were entered into this round before it closed.
