CWA Margery Allingham Short Story Competition

Crime Writers Association

The goal of this contest hosted by the Crime Writers Association is to find the best unpublished short story _ one that fits into legendary crime writer Margery 's definition of what makes a great story: ÐThe Mystery remains box-shaped, at once a prison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a Conclusion with an Element of Satisfaction in it.Ó The international competition is open to all _ both published and unpublished authors from all over the world _ and is for short stories of up to 3,500 words.
