Watch writers compete in a battle of words
Date taken: July 11, 2012
The first time I heard about Write Club and its seven-minute bouts, I envisioned a few different scenarios − writers assigned a topic and writing a story in seven minutes; writers throwing sentences (like punches) back and forth; writers sitting with paper and pens (computers would be too dangerous) in a giant boxing ring. The reality is that Write Club is set up better than I imagined. The monthly event features three rounds. The writing is carefully crafted beforehand (fiction, non-fiction, poetry) and delivered in seven minutes. The audience is lively and loud. And the winner of each round (by audience vote) selects a charity where proceeds are donated.
And, if you are wondering about the photo … the boxing gloves are just a prop. The clock is not.
