Write Club 10 Year Anniversary

Write Club 10 Year Anniversary

6PM DOORS | 7PM SHOW | 21+

Write Club turns ten in 2020, which means it's just about old enough to stand in line at a shiny new dispensary and pay for its own edibles. Bout time.

It's only fitting, then, that we celebrate our milestone by bringing a bunch of other Illinois Triumphs back to the Write Club stage at Hideout. There are too many, of course, for a mere one show. We had to pack it into two, so that we continue to abide by the Chicago rule of Early and Often.

On January 24th and 31st, Hideout will explode with literature as bloodsport, so you'd best bring a poncho.

NY Times Bestselling Author of We Are Never Meeting In Real Life, Meaty, and writer for Hulu's Shrill, Samantha Irby, joins the show once more as a perfect combatant on January 24th. She will face off against founder and host, Ian Belknap. Shortly thereafter, Belknap hands the reins of the enterprise over to new host/producer Corrbette Pasko. After that, the crowd will devour him, as is custom.

Plus, we're trying something new to keep it spicy after 10 years: we're doin' a three way, and it centers around some anniversary gifts.

Your January 24th Write Club Lineup is:

EBB (Ian Belknap) v FLOW (Samantha Irby)

RENEW (Bear Bellinger) v REVOKE (Himabindu Poroori)

JEWELS (Emily Rose) v METALS (Lily Be) v FLOWERS (Myke Johns, Write Club Atlanta)
