Think! Found Magazine meets J&C Letters to the Editor. The two of them go trick or treating as the Pedestrian Bridge and the Wabash River. Each receive a tremendous amount of candy, stickers, and other household items. Upon returning home, they examine their loot and find a letter. The writer tells them the location of a secret trunk full of valuables and photographs. They quickly head out into the night. They enter Happy Hollow Park after dusk and…AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Open Stage Satire

For this Write Club, we are trying something different.

  • write new works using improvisation
  • experiment with the presentation of written works
  • perform those iterations for an audience that evening!

Everyone is welcome at any time. If you want to write or experiment/perform that night, you have to be at the Knickerbocker by a specific time:

7PM – Writers
8PM – Experimenters/Performers
9PM – Audience

We need you (esp. writers) to do the following, damnit:

Bring journals, letters, notebooks, shopping lists, pockets full of old papers, newspaper clippings, random scraps you find on the street, and anything else that goads thought.

Can’t make it? Call our voicemail art project, 312-DRY-TOFU (312-379-8638), to contribute via the phone. To be considered for this month’s show, you must call before July 25th.

Think! Found Magazine meets J&C Letters to the Editor. They move in together. They read Viola Spolin, Mick Napier, Albert Camus, and William S. Burroughs to each other before bed. After a few years, they give birth to a beautiful child they call Open Stage Satire.

Look for the next Write Club on July 25th. We are an experimental group. As such, we continue to learn more about ourselves as Write Club members, the audience, and the greater Lafayette area. To aid with that journey, we started to brainstorm our manifesto. You can read this ongoing Write Club Manifesto project here.

The next event will be a bit different from the previous ones. You can read about those changes in detail on the Write Club projects page.

Here is the copy from the June 27th Write Club Press Release:

The night will be filled with booze, Write Club Battles, food, readings from old writings, improvisational creation, pens, breaking the 4th wall, and paper. Instant theatre. Join us!

We need you to bring your old writings. Anything. Shopping lists, notebooks, journals, movie treatments, poems, wishes. Everything.

Create fresh material instantly. Perform with other writers.
