This year marks the 120th anniversary of mystery writer Agatha Christie's birth. If you're fan then check out the annual Agatha Christie Festival (September 12-19) in Torquay, Devon.
Spinetingler Magazine has put together a new writing contest, asking for stories about revenge, “about getting back at someone who deserves it.” Entries should run from 1,000 to 1,450 words long, and must be submitted by July 21. There are even some modest cash rewards for work well done. Send entries via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the autumn, Spinetingler will publish the first, second, and third place winners, as well as three honorable mentions.
