Northern Crime Competition 2014 - Deadline: Fri 29 Aug 2014

Moth Publishing is looking for the next big writer in crime fiction


Northern Crime is a unique competition that aims to unearth and publish exciting new crime writing from writers who live and work in the north of England. It is a collaboration between the writing development agency New Writing North and publisher BEPL, who have come together to create the Moth imprint.

Last year Moth published the four winning books from the inaugural Northern Crime competition: Rebecca Muddiman’s Stolen, Helen Cadbury’s To Catch a Rabbit, Alfie Crow’s Rant and Michael Donovan’s Behind Closed Doors. Together the books have so far sold over 50,000 ebook and print copies and garnered widespread critical praise from reviewers and readers.

Now we are 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 Northern Crime short story anthology.

The winning novels will be published in print and as ebooks in 2015. The winning writers will receive a standard publishing contract, a £1,000 advance, and support to editorially develop their work. They will also enjoy a marketing and PR campaign to support the publication of their books. Short story winners will get £100 and their story published in the very first Northern Crime short story anthology.
