 Write Club is a show that is produced, curated, hosted, and edited by WHAM's very own Literary Arts Manager Jonathon Rios.

So what is Write Club you ask? 

 Write Club is Literary Bloodsport.

6 Writers | 3 Rounds | 2 Opposing topics


The Combatants receive their one word prompt a week before the show and write a 7 minute piece to read in front of a  raucous WHAM audience.  We've already had Combatants come in from Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Colorado to take on
PHX's best!   Rios comes to us from Write Club Los Angeles where he was in movies and has been on stages from New York to Los Angeles.  He has worked with USC, UCLA, ASU, NPR and the Empowerment Congress Arts and Culture Commission.


What does that look like in practice?  Here is an example of Rios back in 2015 at Write Club Los Angeles with the word Beach:
