For my students and anyone else studying creative writing in the UK:
The deadline of this writing competition, held in memory of Jo Powell, has been extended until 30th April. BA and MA writing students are eligible to enter. Crime is defined broadly - stories do not have to be who-dunnits or traditional murder mysteries. Stories could be told from the point of view of the perpetrator, they could be about street crime or a heist; there are numerous possibilities. Have a look at some new and classic crime stories at East of the Web to get an idea of the scope of crime fiction.
