CWA Debut Dagger Competition
The Debut Dagger is open to anyone who has not yet had a novel published commercially. Send the opening chapter(s) – up to 3000 words – and a 500-1000 word synopsis of your proposed crime novel. All shortlisted entrants will receive a professional assessment of their entries. Winning the Debut Dagger doesn’t guarantee you’ll get published. But it does mean your work will be seen leading agents and editors, who have signed up over two dozen winners and shortlisted Debut Dagger competitors.
