Crimewave 19

A project of TTA Press (see other related projects)


In 1999 crime writer (and author of Success…And How To Avoid It, more about which can be found in our Books section) Mat Coward suggested that we plug a gap in the UK marketplace by publishing a crime and mystery fiction magazine. So we founded Crimewave.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
