Write It, Work It, Publish It™

The CWA Debut Dagger 2010

Row of books by previous winners

Fancy a stab at crime writing?

The Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Competition launched the careers of all these crime writers.

Could you be next?

The 2010 Debut Dagger Competition opened on 31st October, and will close at midnight on 6th February. Go on, take a stab at it, send us the opening chapter(s) – up to 3000 words – and a short synopsis of your proposed crime novel, and you could be a published crime writer.

Winning the Debut Dagger doesn’t guarantee you’ll get published. But it does mean your work will be seen by leading agents and top editors, who have signed up over a dozen winners as well as shortlisted Debut Dagger competitors.

The Debut Dagger is open to anyone who has not yet had a novel published commercially. First prize is £500 plus two free tickets to the prestigious CWA Dagger Awards and night’s stay for two in a top London hotel. All shortlisted entrants will receive a generous selection of crime novels and professional assessments of their entries, and will also be invited to the Dagger Awards.
