The Crucible Firts Novel Award
Closing Deadline: 1st February 2021
The Crucible First Novel Award is a brand new, free to enter competition for unrepresented authors.
We are looking for the best new novels in crime, mystery, and thriller, and are asking entrants to submit the first 5,000 words of their manuscripts, along with a 150 word 'elevator pitch'. We will choose the best 20-30 entries, and compile them into the Crucible Chapbook, which will be sent to a list of agents and agencies.
This year's judges are:
Catherine Cho of the Madeleine Milburn Agency
Hellie Ogden of the Janklow & Nesbitt Agency
Lucy Morris of Curtis Brown Books

Each judge will request at least one full MS from our chapbook.
