In the week beginning 17th August, Writers Against Covid-19 will be holding a Crime Week.
WAC-19 was started in March when the UK went into lockdown, as a service to all those who felt depressed and isolated. A new short story is published every day. The project has been a great success, with readers around the world and over 100 stories on the website.
This is an excellent way for new writers to reach a global readership while helping those who are struggling with the pandemic.
WAC-19 shall be publishing all suitable stories during Crime Week. There is no limit on the number of stories writers can send and they can be on any genre within the crime category, up to 2,000 words. There is more information on the Submissions page at http://www.writerscircle.net
