We Need More CRAZY In Our Lives

Writers come from all walks of life and have backgrounds that cover the whole spectrum but most have one thing in common: they’re all a bit mad.

That is, at least, they WERE all a bit mad. Now it seems like there are no insane writers. Nobody is pushing the buttons and challenging the very concept of what it is to be a writer – to be human.

Bring back the mad ones.

Bring back the insanity.

Bring back Bukowski, Thompson, Kerouac, Hemmingway, Poe and F. Scott.

Bring back the mad ones!
