About this Event

Sweet merciful ragweed, will it really have been 116 days since the last Write Club?

Yes. It will. That's about how long it takes to gestate a litter of porcupines. But rest assured, we have not been brewing up baby porcupines. We've been brewing up plans, and righteousness, and the sort of all-encompassing, full-throated howl you get when you place six writers in dire opposition to one another. Join us at The Hideout NEXT TUESDAY for these three bouts:

REMAIN (Billy Lombardo) VS LEAVE (Bear Bellinger)

TEACHER (Bilal Dardai) VS STUDENT (Noelle Krimm)

FEED (Jeremy Owens) VS STARVE (Jennifer Peepas)

PLUS both Overlord Ian Belknap and Overbeing Corrbette Pasko are poised to host. Who will take the helm? A coin toss will decide that night’s host, with the loser on timekeeping duties.

You feel the chill winds blowing. If you're looking for warmth, start mulling your wine and knitting your mittens while you binge-watch your amateur British bakers worry that their crusts will flake off beneath the withering judgment of Paul and Prue. If it's more than warmth you're after, then cram yourself into a room full of other Chicagoans and listen up while these six combatants spit some fire.

The kids are back in school. So now Write Club is back to schoolin'.
