The New Hampshire Writers’ Project is sponsoring another Three Minute Fiction Slam this winter. The Slam is a fast paced literary competition that challenges writers to perform original pieces of fiction in three minutes or less in front of a panel of judges.

The Monadnock Writers’ Group will host a regional Fiction Slam on Saturday, February 11 at 10:00 in the Peterborough Town Library. The winner of the Monadnock contest qualifies for the finals. Click here to read about the finals in April.

How does the event work? 

  • Writers take turns presenting original flash fiction pieces of no more than three minutes in length when read aloud.
  • After each writer is done, judges privately record a numeric score out of five. One point over-all will be deducted if an author goes over the allotted three minutes.
  • We are pleased to have established local writers Jack Hitchner and Linda Warren as our judges.

Come to hear creative voices from our community!

Come to be a creative voice!

There is no admission fee.

This year’s regional winners will gather for a final showdown at the New Hampshire Institute of Art on April 5. For more information of the statewide event, go to: http://nhwritersproject.org/content/three-minute-fiction-slam#overlay-context=content/three-minute-fiction-slam.

Past winners have performed their works for the Business in the Arts Awards Ceremony, the Currier Museum, and on-air at NHPR. Among other prizes, the ultimate winner gets free entrance to Writers’ Day (the region’s largest literary conference) where they will read the winning work in before an audience of publishers, editors, agents, and fellow writers.
