Preparations are underway for the annual Muskoka Novel Marathon,  the fundraising event in support of the YMCA’s Adult Literacy Programs. This year’s event is scheduled for weekend of July 13, 2018 at the Active Living Centre in Huntsville.

The three-day long writing sprint draws writers from near and far, providing them with a retreat in a setting bursting with creativity. 

There’s a good mix of fresh blood and seasoned veterans in the 2018 Marathon, even a few participants turned volunteers..

To date, the event has raised over $170,000 in its 16 years of existence and has aided in jumpstarting the writing careers of many writers, some who have gone on to become published authors.
