2021 Scarlet Stiletto Awards: The Women's Crime and Mystery Short Story Competition

2021 Scarlet Stiletto Awards by Sisters in Crime: crime and mystery fiction by women

We're excited to announce the Sisters in Crime Australia's 28th Scarlet Stiletto Awards, and this year we're setting a prize money record!

The annual Scarlet Stiletto Awards for best short crime and mystery short stories by women writers is this year offering record $11,910 in prizes.
“Crime does pay – at least on the page,” said Carmel Shute, secretary of Sisters in Crime. “And writing is a lot safer than holding up your local service station, especially during a pandemic.”

There are fifteen different awards on offer, and entries are open right now. Learn how to enter the Sisters in Crime Scarlet Stiletto Awards, then have a look at previously-winning stories in our twelve-book Scarlet Stiletto ebook collection, available right here at Clan Destine Press.
