While we usually aim to post calls for submissions for non-fiction stories from the everyday lives of our readers (…it’s kind of our thing), we sometimes have to show some love to the fiction writers out there reading SMITH. National Public Radio is currently accepting stories for their annual Three-Minute Fiction Contest. Up until 11:59pm in July 18th, NPR will be accepting original fictional stories of up to 600 words.
One winner will have their story read on-air during Weekend All Things Considered where they will also be interviewed. And as an added bonus they’ll get an autographed copy of “How Fiction Works” -a must have for any aspiring fiction writer. The complete detailed contest rules are available on npr.org.
