Crime in the Spotlight

Crime in the Spotlight

As we do every year, Bloody Scotland wants to offer a platform to shine a spotlight on new crime writing talent during the festival. This year we are inviting new and emerging published crime writers to apply for a slot to read out a short sample of their work before one of our programmed events – this might be physically in Stirling or online.

This year, youโ€™re eligible to apply for Crime in the Spotlight if you:

– have never appeared on the programme at Bloody Scotland before
– are early in your crime writing career (such as on your first or second published book, but no more)
– are based in the UK

Crime in the Spotlight 2021 applications are now closed. Thank you for entering, we’ll be in touch soon!
