Three-Minute Fiction Contest

Writing.jpgTrying to write more in the new year? If so, National Public Radio's Three-Minute Fiction contest could provide just the push you need. To enter, write an original piece of fiction that can be read in less than three minutes and is no more than 600 words. The current contest judge is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and her challenge for the contest is as follows: At some point in your story, one character must tell a joke. And, one character must cry.

For complete rules, more information and tips from Adichie, check out NPR's Three-Minute Fiction announcement. The deadline is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, January 23.
