The Crime Writers’ Association

2024 Dagger Nominations Open

Have you published an award-worthy book in 2023?

The deadline for nominating and submitting books for the annual Daggers is November 15.

Has your publisher nominated your book? If not, now is a good time to nudge them. Traditionally published authors are also welcome to nominate their own books.

Are you self-published? Self-published authors who are CWA members are also welcome to self-nominate.

All CWA members get a 50% discount on the entry fee — yet another benefit of membership!

More information can be found here.

If you have additional questions, please contact Daggers Liason Mike Stotter here.
