About this show

Emily Dickinson. William Shakespeare. Ernest Hemingway. All dead...and therefore, not great writing teachers.

Today you'll be learning from two amazing writers with the guts to actually be alive. Colin O'Brien is a master of both the self-help and self-harm genres. Michael Wolf is a pioneer in the erotic nonfiction genre. These two literary powerhouses will be your writing instructors for the evening and help you to become the writer you think you might be — but so far haven't shown any signs of becoming. Simply put, these two lords of the words are going to teach you how to finish your terrible novel in 30 minutes, you idiot!

Part seminar. Part Broadway play. How to Write a Book: The Play is all the drama you can handle packed into one tragic comedy.
