Poetry off the Shelf: The Write Club

Thursday, December 18th, 7:00 PM

Poetry Foundation
61 West Superior Street  
Free Admission


Write Club is bare-knuckled literature and just the thing to shake up the holidays. Two opposing writers argue two opposing ideas, and each has seven minutes, no more, to throw their best punches before the audience picks a winner.

Hosted by Ian Belknap.
