Aspiring crime novelists take note – at our pitch-to-win event, unpublished crime writers can pitch their novels to a panel of top publishing executives who are in the business of seeking out hot new crime writing talent. Take on the challenge of presenting your novel convincingly, to win prizes and get valuable feedback on what they look for in a novel idea. Only for the brave, can you pit your crime novel against other top talent and win the ear of our panel of literary experts?

This year the panel is chaired by literary agent Jenny Brown and includes Emad Akhtar, editor at Orion; Holly Domney, publishing co-ordinator at Black Thorn Books; and Mark Stanton, literary agent at the North Agency.

Applications for 2019 are CLOSED.
