BOOKS & LIT | Write Club Toronto: Chapter 6
Write Club is a fight club for writers who are willing to go tête-à-tête in front of a live audience at The Garrison for charity. Given two opposing ideas, two writers will face off for seven minutes apiece with the audience picking a winner. Tonight, eight writers--Ryan F. Hughes, Jason Maghanoy, Aisha Alfa, Patrick Hakeem, Marilla Wex, Daniela Saioni, Chloe Van Keeken and Megan Griffith-Greene--will face off. Cheer and jeer at Write Club Toronto: Chapter 6 this evening because, after all, it is for charity.
