Northern Crime competition 2014: looking for new northern crime writers

Posted by

Northern Crime, the innovative literary competition that aims to unearth and publish exciting new crime writing from writers who live and work in the North of England, is back. After a successful debut year – with a launch list of Rebecca Muddiman’s Stolen, Helen Cadbury’s To Catch a Rabbit, Alfie Crowe’s Rant and Michael Donovan’s Behind Closed Doors – Moth Publishing is looking for more fresh new voices, more great stories with strong characters, and fiction that isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of the genre. This year, for the first time, we are also looking for short stories to publish in the first Northern Crime anthology.

Deadline for entries is Friday 29 August.

Moth Publishing is a partnership between New Writing North and Sunderland-based Business Educational Publishers Limited.
