The Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award The Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award began in 2008 as a way to honor attending writers at the Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference. But as Killer Nashville’s reach has grown, so has interest in its competitions. And now the competition is open to self-published and traditionally published writers throughout the world. The Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award is committed to discovering new writers, as well as superlative books by established authors and, upon discovery, sharing those writers and their works with new readers. Visit the Killer Nashville site [www.killernashville.com] to learn more.
The Killer Nashville Claymore Award The Killer Nashville Claymore Award was created to assist new and rebranding English-language fiction authors get published, including possible agent representation, book advances, editor deals, and movie and television sales.
Over $3,000 worth of prizes are given away each year, but to us, the publishing and deals made—and the careers they build—are the end game. Visit the Killer Nashville Claymore Award [www.killernashville.com/claymore] page to view previous winners who are now published, and read the competition’s submission guidelines.
