Could you be next? Round Seven of our Three-Minute Fiction contest starts next weekend. Now, for those of you who don't know about Three-Minute Fiction, we asked you to write an original short story that can be read in less than three minutes - meaning no more than 600 words. So clean off that keyboard, dust off the typewriter, grab your pens - pick up that quill, if you have to - because it all kicks off next Saturday with a new judge and a new challenge. If you just can't wait, you can get in on the conversation on our Three-Minute Fiction Facebook page.
