Announcing the 35th Annual International 3-Day Novel Contest
Labour Day Weekend, September 1-3, 2012

Can you write a masterwork of fiction in 72 short hours? What began as a dare in a Vancouver bar has become an act of defiance. Today, 35 years after its birth, the 3-Day Novel Contest still reigns as one of the world’s most maddening, compelling and exhilarating challenges for writers.

Register now and commit yourself to this brain-bending creative experience. Whether you’re a first-timer or seasoned 3DNC veteran, you won’t be able to predict where the experience might take you. But what you can count on is a literary workout that will push the limits of your imagination and kick the heck out of writer’s block for one intense long weekend.

Early-bird registration deadline: August 15 ($50)
Final registration cutoff: August 31 ($55)
Contest date: September 1-3
Prizes: First prize is paid publication; second prize is $500; and third prize is $100. But the real prize, for everyone who gives it their all, is the 72-hour banishment of writers block and one crumpled, tear-stained first draft of a novel.
Open to all writers, everywhere in the world
