ROUNDS on Three minute fiction

 

Below are the various contest rounds that may be found in the book. At present we have stories from round 5-10.

 

Round 11 Stories
Finders Keepers - Lost and Found. A character finds something he/she has no intention of returning. Looks like there are no restrictions on time. When the round is over and all (well, the sad fact is most of us will lose), come here and submit your story to be published in an actual EEB (enhanced epub Book). Previously NPR had a condition in the terms that did not allow you to publish your story for a few months, however I can find no such terms this round. If there is, someone please let me know. We don't want to step on anyones toes. Remember, record your story as an audio file to make it live.
