“A coffee-fueled, plot-weaving literary juggernaut.”
“Both wonderful and awful.”
We are now accepting registrations for the 34th annual manifestation of the world’s most notorious literary marathon. Every year, hundreds of writers from all over the world try their hand at this 72-hour literary endurance race, earning themselves bragging rights, a cool certificate and one crumpled, typo-ridden first draft of a manuscript.
Curious? Compelled? Register today and find out just what you might think up under pressure. You could win cash prizes, and our judges’ favourite novel wins publication by 3-Day Books. And, best of all, everyone who commits to the contest will experience one massive creative kick-start and the complete banishment of writer’s block for one very, very long weekend.
Contest dates: Labour Day weekend, September 3–5
Early-bird registration deadline: August 5, $50 fee
Final registration cutoff: September 2, $55 fee
