NPR's Three-Minute Fiction Contest

One of our pre-kids rituals was listening to NPR's Weekend Edition. Not so much anymore.

So I didn't hear about NPR's summer writing contest until I saw mention of it over at The Elegant Variation this morning.

Details here.

It's called Three-Minute Fiction (stories should be 500-600 words), and the judge is James Wood, literary critic for The New Yorker and author of How Fiction Works.

Mr. Wood will select stories throughout the summer and read them on the air. Then a winner will be announced in late July.
