Are you ready to try your hand at short fiction?
The second installment of the National Public Radio Three-Minute Fiction Contest has a twist that should interest nurse writers: Your original short fiction (no longer than 600 words) must begin with the sentence, “The nurse left work at five o’clock.”
One entry per person, and no more than 600 words please! Stories must be received by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Full information and instructions for submitting your short short story can be found at: http://www.npr.org/threeminutefiction
