Final preparations are now underway for Deal Noir 2017, taking place next Saturday, 25th March at the Landmark Centre, Deal.
At the moment I am reading through the entries for the Flash Fiction competition for which I am one of the judges. Once again the standard is very high with a variety of approaches to writing a crime story (not necessarily a murder) in 50 words or fewer. They range from a police procedural (yes, you can capture procedure in 50 words), through dark psychology to the downright macabre with one entry in the form of poetry rather than prose. It’s going to be a difficult decision.
There are still a few tickets remaining for what promises to be a fascinating day. To book your place go to:
