muskokanovelmarathon.com: Each year writers from all over fundraise for adult literacy programs in the Muskoka area and then get together for one crazy, amazing three day weekend where they attempt to write a novel – and many do! If you are interested in forging fantastic friendships in a fun, focused writing environment this is the event for you! Sign up for their newsletter to get notifications when registration starts – and grab one of the coveted seats when they are available (they only take 40 participants per year).
Ready. Set. Write! – Hosted by NiagaraWrites.ca this short story one day marathon is just getting started, but plans are to repeat it several times each year. Writers of all experience levels are invited to participate – mostly for the joy of writing, but also to donate a story for possible inclusion into an anthology. Get your name in print! The proceeds from the anthology will be donated to charity (see current event details for which one each anthology will support). Sign up for our newsletter to be notified when and where the next one will be held.
