literary collective

(serious writing games)

v.e.r.b.a.t.i.m. formed in Providence, Rhode Island, three years ago. Offshoots now meet in Boston, New York, and the San Francisco Bay area.

We meet weekly to experiment with progressive writing and constraint-based writing games.

This web site, under constant construction, contains an archive of past work and a cross-indexed list of writing games.

Click here to see an old but very cute photo.

Note to verbaters, past and present: We are working on getting the archive together to put up on the site. Please let us know if you have stuff on disk that's not on the verbaty archive; or if you have originals to contribute. Please email (or heck, even snail mail) me, Leslie, or Adam with anything to add to this website. Manifestos? Pictures? Design ideas? Links?

For now, please add to the ACTIVITY LIST by emailing us.
