News: Lindisfarne Prize for Debut Crime Fiction

First time debut crime fiction writers have until the end of 31 March 2020 to enter the Lindisfarne Prize, a writing competition specifically for debut crime fiction writers who haven’t previously been published. Run and organised by self-published north east crime writer, LJ Ross, pictured above, the competition has a £2,500 prize pot to support the completion of their work, as well as free editorial and mentoring services from a local independent publisher and funding towards a year’s membership of industry associations. Eligible candidates should submit a short story of no more than ten thousand words, or the first two chapters and a synopsis of a full length novel written in the English language.
