OK, I hope I finally have this in the right place. Schmoozing allowed here, right?
The discussion on the forum "What are some examples of crime literature that serve as deep social commentary?" got quite a lot of responses. This has inspired us at Noir Nation to add a new section to the first issue of Noir Nation wherein writers opine on the following question: Must crime noir have a moral point? The word limit is 300 to 500 words. Include short bio, and photo. There is a $25 honoraria, payable on publication. Best five get published in Issue No. 1.
