The Muskoka Novel Marathon is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a virtual event.

Taking place from July 16th through July 19th, this will be the second year in a row the literary marathon is taking place online.

The Muskoka Novel Marathon: Quarantine Edition features avid writers indulging in 72 hours of wordsmithing and fundraising for literacy programs provided by the YMCA offices throughout Muskoka.

Since starting its fundraising efforts many years ago, the Muskoka Novel Marathon has raised more than $225,000 to help fund classes for reading, writing, numeracy, computer literacy and English as a Second Language, ensuring they can be offered to people in the community free of charge.
