CWA Margery Allingham Short Story Competition

CWA are looking for the best unpublished short story – one that fits into Margery’s definition of what makes a great story.
“The Mystery remains box-shaped, at once a prison and a refuge. Its four walls are, roughly, a Crime, a Mystery, an Enquiry and a Conclusion with an Element of Satisfaction in it.”
The competition is open to all – both published and unpublished authors- and is for short stories of up to 3,500 words.
Not previously published so whether you polish off a dusty draft or craft a brand new idea is totally up to you.
£15 fee per short story. This fee is subject to VAT.
Deadline: 1st March 2016.
