“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
-Anais Nin

Roar Shack is a collective of writers and artists that will bring you voices over the coming months. Some members come from fiction, some from memoir, some from poetry, and some from music and performance and just about anything else that leaves its own blood on the page. Roar Shack wants to bring you what you may not be getting much of. Won’t you join us?

We dare you to miss this lineup:

John Eder
Mario Piumetti
Musical guest Josh Hickman
Wendy Fontaine
Last month’s Live write winner and all-around overachiever Justine Musk
Natashia Deon

Live Write! A thrilling feat of writerly improvisation! As you arrive, you get to vote on a prompt. The winning prompt will be revealed to four intrepid authors – two of us and two of you audience types, onstage for all to see! We’ll all write to that prompt while our musical guest plays – it’s going to be impossible not to listen, but no one said this was going to be easy. Then the Live Writers will each read their just-written words, and the audience gets to vote! The winner will develop the work into a finished piece to be read at the next show.
