Harvill Secker and Telegraph launch crime competition

Harvill Secker and the Daily Telegraph have launched a crime writing competition, offering a £5,000 book deal to the winner.  

Entries must have an "international" theme, in keeping with the publisher’s profile. The prize will be judged by Alison Hennessey, senior crime editor at Harvill Secker; agent Sam Copeland at Rogers, Coleridge and White; Heffers crime buyer Richard Reynolds; and Jon Stock, of the Telegraph’s books pages.
 
To support the competition, the Telegraph is running a series of crime masterclasses, in print and online, featuring writers such as Jo Nesbo, Susan Hill and Stuart Neville.
 
Hennessey said:  “Crime fiction has always been a very important part of what we publish at Harvill Secker and as an editor, I’m always on the look out for exciting new names.  I’m delighted that, through our partnership with the Telegraph, we’ll be able to offer a brilliant new crime writer this opportunity.”
