Event Details

Thrillers are the books that grab us from the first page, take us through breathless twists and turns, and end in a way we never saw coming. The Institute for Writers first pages writing contest is your chance to submit the first 1,000 words of your thriller novel and keep us on the edge of our seats. Can you have us biting our nails to see what happens next?

Entries for this contest will include a one to two-sentence book summary followed by no more than 1,000 words from the beginning of your book and will be judged by one of our instructors. Work submitted to this contest should be previously unpublished.

Are you up for the challenge?
