GUY RAZ, host:

Your stories are rolling in for this round of our Three Minute Fiction competition. Our readers at the Iowa Writers Workshop have been poring over them, and we've posted a few of our favorites online at npr.org/threeminutefiction.

If you haven't sent in a story yet, here's our new judge to tell you how.

ALAN CHEUSE: I'm Alan Cheuse, book reviewer for ALL THINGS CONSIDERED and the judge for this round of Three Minute Fiction. Send us your original stories, stories you can tell in under 600 words. We'll pick our winner to read on the air, and we'll also post some standout submissions at npr.org/threeminutefiction.

RAZ: That's Three Minute Fiction, all spelled out, no spaces, and please remember only one entry per person. So make it a good one.
