For this prompt, dear writers, we’re borrowing the structure of NPR’s popular three-minute fiction
series. That’s right, when your response is read aloud, it should last no longer than THREE MINUTES (about 600 words).
And one more requirement: Your story must contain a surprising encounter. Running into an old acquaintance, for example, or discovering a startling connection with a stranger, or being followed home by a goat.
We can’t wait to read your three-minute tales aloud!
