The Geek-Out is writers geeking out about literature, plain and simple! One writer will make the other read something for the first time and then for about an hour they talk together about craft, impact, what they loved, what they didn’t. The audience is encouraged to read the piece too, and participate via the chat box.

The event is a fundraiser for StoryStudio’s Doro Boehme scholarship fund, benefiting writers working on book-length projects. We hope to make The Geek-Out a regular series, inviting your favorite writers to participate and discuss other legendary stories and books.
