3-Day Novel Contest


210-111 West Hastings Street

Vancouver BC V6B 1H4





Can you produce a masterwork of fiction in three short days? The 3-Day Novel Contest is your chance to find out. For 37 years, hundreds of writers have stepped up to the challenge each Labour Day weekend, fuelled by nothing but adrenaline and the desire for spontaneous literary nirvana.

The actual writing must begin no earlier than 12:01 a.m., on the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend, and must stop by 11:59 on the following Monday. Novels may not be edited outside the contest time frame. Novels must be postmarked on or before Monday, Sept. 11, 2017 to qualify.


3-Day Novel Contest is listed in the following categories:
