Writers and Artists crime and thriller fiction conference and writing competition
There is a Writers and Artists crime and thriller fiction conference in September and a competition to enter, full details below:
This week, Writers & Artists is celebrating the
thrilling, fast-paced world of crime fiction – the page-turners, the grisly
murders and the jaw-dropping twists – with two new, exciting additions to
the community; our first full-day event and competition devoted to writing crime and thriller fiction. Read on for
everything you need to know about how to take part.
Join us for our
inaugural Writing Crime and Thriller Fiction conference on Saturday
19th September, presented by award-winning authors, leading literary
agents and creative writing tutors.
This day, consisting of
an agent panel in the morning and a series of interactive, intensive
workshops in the afternoon, aims to leave you equipped with the techniques
and tools you need to craft a manuscript that will keep your readers
immersed until the very last page (and long after).
Writers & Artists is
excited to announce a new competition dedicated exclusively to crime and
thriller writing. Whether you have a polished manuscript sitting at home,
have just completed your first draft or are only a few thousand words in,
we want you to submit up to the first 2,000 words of your crime/thriller
fiction manuscript. This is your chance to get your work in front of
our judge, literary agent Diana Beaumont, and receive expert feedback to
help you on your journey towards publication.
