Do you have a little bit of writerly blood thirst?

By posted at 2:15 pm on May 29, 2012 2

On June 7th Canteen is hosting a battle in NYC’s KGB Bar. The event is called Outwrite and will pit Matthew Aaron Goodman, author of Hold Love Strong, against twelve two unknown volunteers in a flash writing competition. Alexander Chee will be reading from his new novel while the contestants prepare their weapons. This would make a great #LitBeat, and if you’re interested in covering this, get in touch with me here.

    Small correction: Only two volunteers will compete against Matthew, not twelve. Thanks for covering our event, and keep up the great writing at http://booksidetable.wordpress.com !

    Hi Stephen! Thanks for your correction, and sorry about that, I think I misunderstood the business about the volunteers. Best of luck with the event!
