Every year since 2014, the CWA and the Margery Allingham Society have jointly held an international competition for a short story of up to 3,500 words.
Their mission is to find the best unpublished short mystery, and not only that, but one which fits into Golden Age crime writer Margery Allingham’s definition of what makes a great mystery story.
Entries are invited from all writers, published or unpublished, writing in English.
The deadline is February 29, 2024. For details: https://thecwa.co.uk/awards-and-competitions/margery-allingham-short-mystery-competition/
