There is a £2.50 charge per submission.

You can enter each competition as many times as you like.

Winning is a great way for new or established writers in any genre or form to gain recognition (and really helps when you send out letters to agents or publishers to say your work has been independently recognised – and paid for!).

By winning or shortlisting for the competition your work will be displayed on our website and emailed out to our entire mailing list. If shortlisted you’ll also have your work read by a published author and by a distinguished local crime publisher.

Sussex Libraries are also actively promoting this to their readers group and database of 140,000 people!

All this is a firm step towards growing your author fan base.
