The CWA Anthology

The CWA Anthology series are collections of short stories by members of the Crime Writers’ Association and celebrate the best of crime writing by showcasing both established and emerging talent.

The next anthology is to be called Mystery Tour and will be edited as usual by Martin Edwards. He is asking CWA members to send stories with a very broad theme of foreign destinations and travel. Stories can be up to 7,000 words long; NB a shorter length increases chances of acceptance!

The stories that aren’t included on the anthology will appear here, with the authors’ permission.

Stories should be sent to Martin (Chair of the CWA) at his email address (see Red Herrings or the committee details in the members section)and should be in Word with double-spacing with your name and story title. Please send a 70-word bio too.

Stories are accepted subject to the CWA’s terms of contract.

Deadline: 1 June 2017.
