Aspiring crime novelists take note – at our pitch-to-win event, 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 Karen Sullivan (Orenda Books), Phil Patterson (Marjaq Scripts), Karen Robinson (The Times and Sunday Times Crime Club) and Vikki Reilly (Publishing Scotland).
APPLICATIONS FOR 2018 ARE NOW CLOSED.
