Group-Sponsored It’s a Crime Contest
|Deadline:||May 31, 2019|
The Crime Fiction group is seeking the best in short crime fiction. Have a story about a heist gone wrong? Got a spy thriller with a twist? A suspense-filled murder mystery? Is your MC a psycho killer, a hard-boiled private eye, a crooked cop? Or maybe a hooker with a heart of gold? As long as it’s original, entertaining and about a crime, we want to read it.
The story should fall into the genre of crime fiction. This means something illegal, illicit, or ethically over the line must have taken place in the past, is taking place in the present, or will take place at some point in the future—all as expressed in the context of the piece. Adult material is acceptable.
