So Wrong It's Write 

Wednesday, Apr 17 2013

Early on in our writing “career,” we penned long missives about Jewel and our high school boyfriend leaving us for that tramp at Perkins. Thankfully those works were rightfully set on fire in a purging ritual (fine, hex) and never saw the light of day. But a new reading series, now in its third installment, asks successful scribes to purposefully dig up those writing artifacts they now regret for your listening enjoyment. The reading is called Regreturature (literature + regret), which is a portmanteau that sounds as bad as the writing you’re no doubt hearing tonight. And by bad we mean good, of course. Tonight’s talks of shame feature heavy-hitting journos and New York Times bestsellers like Simon Rich, Ellen Sussman, Marie Baca, and Todd Oppenheimer. Come bask in good, old-fashioned badness, and console yourselves that even the best and brightest produce shitty syntax from time to time. Proceeds benefit everyone’s favorite book fest, Litquake.
