Flashbang 2013 has closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. We received 77 stories, which our judges are now reading with relish. We plan to publish a longlist of around 15 stories, details of which should appear on this site on or just after 4 April. The shortlist will be published here on 18 April, and final winners announced live at the Crime Writing Day on 30 May. Good luck to everyone involved.
