I first started The Drunk Writers in Paris, France in November of 2012. It's a simple concept, everyone brings me a bottle of wine and we do 5 minute timed writing prompts.
We usually play some games and write and share our 5 minute stories if we want to. We usually sip wine and eat and socialize before and after.
It's not about being drunk on alcohol, it's really about being in a safe space, writing uninhibited for at least 5 minutes, with good company to encourage you and support you.
With the pandemic and everything switching to virtual. I wanted to leave a legacy, write my books and publish them and help as many others along with me.
I still remember the first time I read "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott and "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. Even hundreds of years after their death, I could still live inside their minds, read their stories, and travel through time, history, and be moved by their words. At a very young age, I discovered a love for books that has never left me and that dream of being a writer in Paris like so many of my favorite authors led me to found the Drunk Writers Paris and now DrunkWriters.com.
