ABOUT KILLER WOMEN

Killer Women is an author collective of 20 female crime-writers, who work together to put on exciting, innovative crime fiction events around the country, for men and women. We also offer our Crime Club members exclusive access to free chapters of our new books, giveaways, competitions and discounted early bird tickets to our annual Killer Weekend event.

KILLER WOMEN MENTORING SCHEME

Killer Women was set up to amplify and support female voices in crime fiction. This year we are delighted to be launching a mentoring scheme to support talented new writers in two of the most under-represented groups within our genre.

This new, free initiative aims to support emerging female crime writers from BAME and working class backgrounds. Four women seeking to write crime, psychological thrillers or suspense fiction will be expertly mentored through the process, from synopsis to first draft manuscript by four traditionally published authors at the top of their game. Each mentor will read work in progress, and offer advice and support, including up to 12 hours of one-to-one contact time, face-to-face or by Skype, email or phone.
 
The Killer Women 2019 Mentoring Scheme is open to UK women 18+ from BAME and/or working glass backgrounds who want to write a full-length novel in the crime, psychological thriller or suspense genres.

Applications for the Killer Women will be accepted from 9am (GMT) on 10th April 2019 to 9am (GMT) on 1st July 2019.
