Two New Daggers Announced
The CWA is proud to announce the addition of two new categories for our Daggers.
The Twisted Dagger award is aimed at psychological thrillers set in any period, as well as suspense thrillers and domestic noir. The Twisted Dagger will celebrate dark and twisty tales that often feature unreliable narrators, disturbed emotions, a healthy dose of moral ambiguity, and a sting in the tail.
Meanwhile, the Whodunnit Dagger covers cosy crime, including the modern cosy, traditional crime, and Golden Age mysteries. The entries in this category will focus on the intellectual challenge at the heart of a good mystery, and revolve around often quirky characters.
The new Daggers will open for entries in early 2024.
