The Claymore Award


Friday, April 1, 2022



Entry Fees



The Top 3 finalists receive heavily discounted admission (a $285 value!) to that year’s Killer Nashville where the winners will be announced and introductions will be made to agents and/or editors to kick-start their publishing careers. Critiques of work will be given. Breakouts will be attended. Pitching sessions will be set up. The Top 3 who are already registered as Killer Nashville attendees will be refunded a portion of their registration fees for that year.


The Killer Nashville Claymore Award assists new and rebranding English-language fiction authors to get published, including possible agent representation, book advances, editor deals, and movie and television sales.
