Welcome to
Write a Book in a Day

WE'RE BACK BIGGER AND BETTER WITH A NEW IMPROVED WEBSITE COMING SOON.

Congratulations to all 2016 winners and we look forward to seeing all the wonderful new entries for 2017!

Last year, we saw a record number of entries and dollars raised towards childhood cancer research. 

We thank the 630 teams and 187 schools across Australia who took part and helped raise $156,000 to help kids with cancer.
