The CWA Debut Dagger

Fancy a stab at crime writing?


Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Competition for 2011 - will run from 30th October 2010 to 5th February 2011.

This Award is open to all writers who have not had a novel published commercially. Entrants are required to submit the first 3000 words of their crime-themed novel, plus a 500/1000 word synopsis.   The short-listed entries are not only circulated to all the editors and agents who are members of our Association, but also to an increasing number who contact us asking to see the list.   Since its inauguration,  two dozen winners and short-listed authors have obtained publishing contracts.  It's a wonderful opportunity for would-be crime writers to jump the slush pile and get their work seen by leading editors and agents.  

Further details can be found on www.thecwa.co.uk (click the 'Debut Dagger' link).
