The 32nd Annual International 3-Day Novel Contest will take place Sept. 5 - 7, 2009 and demands that writers produce a masterwork of fiction in a mere 72 hours. What started as a bet in a bar in 1977 now attracts hundreds of writers from around the world each year.

I'm passing on info I was sent about a writing event, akin to NaNoRiMo but shorter in span. If it's your kind of thing, check it out! -h


Can you produce a masterwork of fiction in three short days? The 3-Day Novel Contest is your chance to find out. For more than 30 years, hundreds of writers have stepped up to the challenge every Labour Day weekend, fueled by nothing but adrenaline and the desire for spontaneous literary nirvana. It?s a thrill, a grind, a 72-hour kick in the pants and an awesome creative experience. How many crazed plotlines, coffee-stained pages, pangs of doubt and moments of genius will next year?s contest bring forth? And what will you think up under pressure?

Registration postmark deadline for the upcoming contest is Sept. 4. For more information on the contest and prizes, visit
