In the mystery genre, the idea of a locked room puzzle is one of the standbys. Everyone from Agatha Christie to Edgar Allen Poe has done it, and now it’s your turn.

Your story, to be considered, must feature the idea, concept or tool of a locked room. It can be figurative or literal, the choice is yours. The challenge is to take this old idea and make it new again.

Please email your submissions in standard manuscript format, along with a short bio for consideration to [email protected]. Please put “Locked Room Submission” in the subject line.

Expected publication date is sometime July/August 2020.
