WRITE CLUB is 3 rounds of 2 writers going head to head over a pair of opposing topics with 7 minutes each--7 MINUTES ONLY—to sway the crowd.
The bouts: FIST vs. FINGER, SPIT vs. SWALLOW, TOP vs. BOTTOM. (Because these words are neglected by drugstore love plushes.)
You pick the winner. Winner's charity gets money.

Now to learn more about our featured writers!
MANDY HU is essentially a pacifist, but approves of the unilateral use of force to subdue opponents in Write Club. She is a public sector labor lawyer who thinks the Supreme Court is about to make a terrible, terrible decision. She is older than you think.
NA'AMEN TILAHUN is a writer of poems, stories and other things. Some of them get published, this makes him happy. His debut novel The Root will be out this June for Night Shade Books. He makes a mean panna cotta.
JULIAN SHENDELMAN is an oakland-based writer, a bay area trans writers workshop organizer, and a full-time dog-dad. he was a 2012 lambda literary fellow in non-fiction and performs regularly in the bay area. you can read more of his work at www.ofashandbone.com.
KAY NILSSON has been featured in literary shows all over the bay area, from The News with the New Shit Show, to KQED at Litcrawl, was a special feature at ¿Donde Esta Mi Gente? and the legendary San Francisco Queer Open Mic. He is based in San Francisco.
DAMIAN LEDBETTER is a gender pragmatic theology student and a proud graduate of the Orange County foster care system. As a California Arts Scholar, his culminating project, “The Fucking Hat,” focused on erotic Harry Potter fanfiction.” Apropos of this evening’s theme, his sexual identity is tweed with leather patches." He will bring it at Write Club with literary fierceness and be killing it with his adorable smile.
ZOE YOUNG is a writer living in San Francisco. She is currently in the first year of her fiction MFA at the California College of the Arts, and writes plays for production at Berkeley Rep through playground SF. She is a proud member of the Finishing School writers group. When Zoe is not busy crushing motherfuckers with malapropisms at Write Club, she enjoys making green smoothies, riding her bike, and being the little spoon.
