Submissions open on 1st May 2022 and close on 31st May 2022 for this crime and thriller prize for unpublished writers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

Hachette UK’s The Future Bookshelf has launched the Mo Siewcharran Prize for its third year.

The initiative, named in memory of Nielsen Book’s former director of marketing and communications, aims to nurture talent from under-represented backgrounds writing in English.

Run as part of Hachette UK’s The Future Bookshelf scheme, the prize was launched in 2019. This year, the prize will be hosted by Quercus Books and in a change from previous years, they are looking for fiction writing in the crime and thriller genre specifically.
