Call for Submissions: All Things Considered’s Three-Minute Fiction Contest

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

By Chris Teja

Because the first few rounds resulted in such amazing stories, NPR’s All Things Considered is returning with another round of their Three-Minute Fiction contest.

The premise remains the same: Compose an original story of 600 words or fewer that tells the story of the selected photograph on NPR’s website. Your entries must be received by February 28th before midnight and the winning story will be read on-air. However, this time around the winner will also receive an autographed copy of All Things Considered book critic Alan Cheuse’s book, To Catch the Lightning: A Novel of American Dreaming and one of his short stories that was also inspired by a photograph. (Cheuse, as it happens, also contributed a short, short story to SMITH Mag’s new Six-Word Memoir book: “Reading led to writing, days, years.”) And if that’s not enough motivation for you, maybe you should take a look outside. This is a perfect example of prime writing weather.
