writing contest: winner discusses writing with best-selling author and major publisher

Muskoka Chautauqua First Annual Writing Contest

Open to residents of the US and Canada, the contest hopes to challenge writers of all ages and abilities with their choice of one of the following topics:

  • The War of 1812: Who really won?

 Without celebrating war or being anti-anyone, this theme recalls the struggles of each of the adversaries during this watershed conflict.

  • Our Canada: Rocks and Roots

Whether it’s rock music, the rock that dominates much of the landscape, your ancestral roots or our magnificent forests, we want to know what makes Canada so special…

Winner will receive two (2) VIP passes to the Muskoka Chautauqua “Weekend With Joseph Boyden” event being held at the luxurious JW Marriott’s The Rosseau Muskoka Resort and Spa this fall.

The event will include opportunities to discuss writing and novels in small, intimate groups, with industry professionals such as Boyden, and publishers Penguin Canada.

Essays will be judged on both style and content, and should be between 500 – 2000 words.

Deadline for submissions is Fri. Aug. 31st at 5pm.

Entries should be sent to: muskokachautauqua@gmail.com;

or via mail to PO Box 172, Port Carling, ON. P0B 1P0.
