From October 1 through November 11, aspiring mystery/crime writers can submit a full-length fiction manuscript for consideration. Throughout the contest, authors will post their 1st chapters of their manuscript in the Court TV Search for the Next Great Crime Writer Contest group. These chapters will be rated by the Gather community and the Gather Editorial Team, and five finalists will be selected through two rounds of rating. (See the rating guidelines.) One Grand Prize Winner will then be chosen for publication by a panel of judges, some of which are bestselling authors in the genre!
So if you’re dying to get your mystery/crime novel into bookstores, enter The Court TV Search for the Next Great Crime Writer Contest. Don’t have the perfect murder mystery ready to go? Readers are needed, too! In the weeks to come, you can join other readers and writers to help rate each chilling entry. Help hunt down the next bestseller.
Need some inspiration? Tune in to “Murder by the Book” premiering November 5th at 10pm ET/PT on Court TV.
