Only 4 Days Left to Register!
Curious? Compelled? Just plain crazy? Sign up today for the world’s most notorious literary marathon.
This is the last week to get your registrations in for the 2011 International 3-Day Novel Contest! The writing event that began as a dare and became a legend is about to take place for the 34th year in a row.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to test your literary chops and see what kind of far-out, fast-paced, fantastical fiction you can produce under pressure. You might earn yourself some whip-smart ideas, some shiny pearls of dialogue, some prime turns of phrases, or, at the very least, a big ol’ creative kick in the pants… and the one novel our judges like best will win publication.
The contest begins at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 3, and ends 11:59 p.m., Monday, Sept. 5. Registrations can be submitted online or by mail until end of day this Friday, September 2. And don’t forget: this year you can save yourself some postage by submitting your novel online! (Old-fashioned snail mail is also still accepted.)
”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
New this year: save paper and postage by submitting your novel online! Instructions will be sent by email after you register.
