Once again, you've survived the onslaught of the red and pink assault to the eyes that is Valentine's Day. Every box of too-pale, dusty chocolate, every giant-eyed plush bear, every lace doily made into a card is now gone from the stores...the Green Offensive will soon be upon us.

Fortunately, Write Club is back to remind us all that love isn't found at Walgreens outside of the As Seen On TV section, and that 2020 is also a LEAP YEAR. So, essentially, anything is possible and the flames of our current democracy are merely indicative of the impending delicious barbecue of evil. Come be our bloody chest pump at the legendary Hideout while our combatants battle for glory, candy, cash, Likand the Loving Cup of Deathless F*cking Glory. Sponsored by BluLin IT.

Matters of the heart means passionate words are expected. WRITE CLUB honors that tradition while demanding that you wrap it up in seven minutes or less.
