I submitted my entry for this:
NPR teams with The Paris Review to raise the stakes and bragging rights for the latest “Three-Minute Fiction” contest, launching this Saturday, September 8 on the weekend version of All Things Considered. The story that wins the NPR competition will be published in the quarterly that Time recently called “America’s greatest literary magazine.”
A regular feature of All Things Considered created by host Guy Raz, “Three-Minute Fiction,” challenges listeners to write original works of fiction that can be read aloud in three minutes or less. Each iteration features a guest judge who provides a prompt that must be included in contestants’ stories. For the ninth round, bestselling suspense novelist Brad Meltzer acts as judge and will fittingly reveal his story starter on Saturday.
I’m kind of proud of myself . . .
