Crime Writing Contest

Circalit has just announced a competition to find the next big crime fiction blockbuster, with winning entries being submitted to the leading literary agency, A.P. Watt. They are hosting the competition online where the public can read all submissions and vote for their favourite novels. The top submissions will be read and considered for representation by A.P. Watt. The competition is free, but you do need to create an account at Circalit and post your work online.

Raoul Tawadey, founder of Circalit, commented, “There is a wealth of literary talent across the globe, only a fraction of which gets the recognition it deserves. Crowd-sourcing is a great way for the publishing industry, which thrives on new talent, to find novels with a proven readership. We hope this competition will give talented new writers an opportunity to get their work noticed, and demonstrate the power of the internet to create a global talent pool.”
