Write Your Own Agatha Christie Novel

The folks at the official Agatha Christie website & HarperCollins are hosting a competition to write a new Agatha Christie novel - chapter by chapter - with different winners for each chapter. Entrants used the opening scenes from Agatha Christie's A Murder is Announced to begin the book. 

I just found out about this, and a little late too, so the contests for the first three chapters have already happened. But you can still get in for Chapter Four. The deadline to enter for chapter four is January 26th 2014 at 23:59 GMT. Guidelines for submissions can be found here

The entries will be judged by: Mathew Prichard, Agatha Christie's grandson, and HarperCollins Agatha Christie publishers, David Brawn in the UK and Daniel Mallory in the US.
