Registrations are now open for the notorious 3-day novel contest

Can you produce a masterwork of fiction in a mere 72 hours? The annual International 3-Day Novel Contest is your chance to find out. The contest runs every Labour Day long weekend, as it has since 1977, and it now attracts writers from all over the world. 

It's a thrill, a grind, and an awesome creative experience. How many crazed plotlines, coffee-stained pages, pangs of doubt and moments of genius will the next contest bring forth? And what might you think up under pressure?

The 35th Annual 3-Day Novel Contest will take place September 1-3, 2012. Registration is now open. 

Grand Prize: Publication by 3-Day Books
2nd Prize: $500
3rd Prize: $100
(And, of course, the real prize for everyone who commits to the contest: one massive creative rush and a precious, tear-soaked first draft of a novel. Plus a fancy certificate!)

Paid registration must be sent online or put in the mailbox by Friday, August 31, 2012. (Fee is $50 if sent on or before Aug. 15, and $55 if sent after that. Forms are available on the registration page.)

See Brian Henry's schedule here, including writing workshops and creative writing courses in Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Georgetown, Milton, Oakville, Burlington, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Dundas, Kitchener, Guelph, London, Woodstock, Orangeville, Newmarket, Barrie, Gravenhurst, Sudbury, Muskoka, Peel, Halton, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
