Short, Short, Short Story Contest

NPR is holding a contest, which ends this week. (I just learned about it.)
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.

The winner gets interviewed on Weekend All Things Considered, gets to have his or her story read on air, and gets a book.

Here's where you'll find the rules.

I submitted one and hope to get another in.

How about you?
