All Things Considered’s contest has a simple premise: Listeners send in original short stories that can be read in three minutes or less.
For Round 9 of their short-story contest, they’re asking you to send an original work of fiction that revolves around a U.S. president, who can be real or fictional. It must be 600 words or less. One entry per person. The deadline is 11:59 ET on Sept. 23, 2012.
