Write Club is literature as blood sport - 3 bouts, 2 opposing writers, 2 opposing topics assigned in advance. Audience picks a winner. Combatants battle for the coveted Loving Cup of Deathless Fucking Glory, and a cut of door proceeds. Chicago Reader calls it: "the punchiest thing to hit literature since Hemingway" and it's been named to Best Of lists in the Reader, New City, Chicago Magazine, and Time Out Chicago. Co-hosted by Ian Belknap and Lindsay Muscato.
