Birthed in Chicago at The Hideout, WRITE CLUB is the bastard child of our Overlord, Ian Belknap.
WRITE CLUB is the tenderest bloodsport. WRITE CLUB is a lit-kick to the back of the skull. WRITE CLUB does good without getting all self-righteous.
2 OPPOSING WRITERS.
2 OPPOSING IDEAS.
7 MINUTES APIECE.
AUDIENCE PICKS A WINNER.
Writers compete for cash going to a charity of their choosing.
Hosted by the The Minister of Truth, John Pence, featuring a rotating lineup of Athens’ most audacious and fearsome writer/performers laying it down at The World Famous in downtown Athens, Georgia.
The first rule of WRITE CLUB is: tell 5-7 people about WRITE CLUB.
The second rule of WRITE CLUB is: tell 9-11 OTHER PEOPLE about WRITE CLUB!
Third rule of WRITE CLUB: if someone yells “Stop!” goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over.
Fourth rule: only two WRITERS to a fight.
Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas.
Sixth rule: the fights are bare knuckle.
Seventh rule: fights will go on for 14 MINUTES EXACTLY.
Eighth and final rule of WRITE CLUB: audience picks the winner of the fight – decisions cannot be appealed.
