Literary Agent Madeleine Milburn Chooses Critique Winners

During the BritCrime Festival 11-13 July 2015, new writers were invited to tweet literary agent Madeleine Milburn a one-line pitch or a tantalising question about their unpublished crime novel.

Today Madeleine Milburn chose these three pitches tweeted to her during the festival to win a personal critique:

3 bed rural cottage needs tlc, great views, large garden with mature shrubs, pond and bodies to be unearthed

A little girl is lost at sea, presumed dead, in an accident. 20 years later a young woman claims to be her. Is she?

A secluded barn homes orphaned boys. One by one they get to go to live in The Big House and innocence is lost. Forever

Congratulations to Joy, Louise and Jeanette.

The three winners will be offered feedback on their covering letter, synopsis, and first three chapters of a crime novel.
