Event Details

The Adventure Writers Competition is a non-profit organization, dedicated to helping writers get a leg up! Winning the “Clive” Cussler Grandmaster trophy is one way to get started!

We have one category: Adventure. Any novels between 50,000 and 200,000 words that are in the realm of action/adventure/thriller/mystery – and chocked-full of adventure – are welcome. New and previously published books welcome, though you must have sold or given away less than 10,000 books of the title(s) you enter.

We do not accept sci-fi, fantasy, horror or young children’s books. We are open for entries January 1 through April 30 of 2020. See website for info on rules and entering.

Sponsored by the Clive Cussler Family, the Clive Cussler Collector’s Society, Braveship Books, Venator Media Services and Sven Gillhoolie Publishing is an international competition now in our ninth year. All entry fees ($35) and donations collected are used to promote the contest, the finalists and the winner.
