Three day novel writing race
The City of Salisbury in Adelaide, South Australia, is a great supporter of the arts. Every year they sponsor a Writers’ Festival. I haven’t yet attended one of these but all reports say that it is a worthwhile event to attend.
As a part of that festival – to be held later this year – they hold a special novel writing race. Writers are asked to write a novel over this coming weekend. It is a long weekend throughout most of Australia so that gives writers 72 hours exactly to finish their masterpiece.
I am not going to enter this year because of other commitments which would cut into my writing time. Next year perhaps?
In the meantime, for more information [sorry – this link no longer works].
They also run a short story and poetry writing competition and details are also found on that web page.
