Nov. 12: Write Club Atlanta
The first rule of Write Club Atlanta: TELL EVERYONE ABOUT WRITE CLUB. So, here you go:
2 OPPOSING WRITERS.
â€¨2 OPPOSING IDEAS.
7 MINUTES APIECE.
AUDIENCE PICKS A WINNER.
When I attended this literary event for the first time last year, I just thought I was doing a 90-second promo spot for my show. I thought, eh, literary events never get anybody. HOLY FUCK WAS I WRONG. The Highland Ballroom was packed with enthusiastic listeners, easily 140 or 150, and even then one of the organizers was apologetic for what he thought was a rather undersized turnout. He came out to seeÂ Phone Whore and liked it a lot, and thus another branch of the Atlanta-Cameryn Mutual Admiration Society was launched. He chose to demonstrate his admiration by throwing down the gauntlet and challenging me to be on the show the next time I was in town. Not only that, he said, but he personally would take me on. Oh, boy. I’m thrilled and terrified all at once.
I’ll be at the Nov. 12 edition of Write Club, writing on the idea ofâ€¦ well, we don’t actually get given our prompts until two weeks before. Doors and bar open at 8pmâ€”tickets are $10 at the doorâ€”and the show kicks off at 9. If you’re not in Atlanta, don’t worry: Write Club is super organized about podcasts, so you can still witness the mayhem.
