The CWA's prestigious competition for new crime writers is open for entries until 31 January
The Debut Dagger is aimed at writers who have not previously had a full-length novel published commercially.
The first prize is £700, and although winning the CWA Debut Dagger is not a guarantee of publication, agents and publishers have signed more than two dozen winners and shortlisted entrants in the 15 years of its existence. WM's own Adrian Magson was shortlisted in 2001.
Entrants should submit the opening of a crime novel up to 3,000 words and a synopsis.
There is a fee of £25 per entry. The closing date is 31 January.
