Three-Minute Fiction Winners: Where Are They Now?

Play associated audio

Three-Minute Fiction is All Things Considered's creative writing contest where our listeners submit an original short story that can be read in about three minutes — 600 words — or less. After weeks of reading a couple thousand submissions, a judge picks a winning story. Over the last two years, contestants have submitted about 29,000 stories, and only six have won. Next week our judge will announce the winner of Round 7, so we decided to catch up with past Three-Minute Fiction champions.
