Vouched Presents: The Five Hundred
The Goatfarm, 1200 Foster Street (Westside)
You know that one long-winded buddy who takes twenty minutes to relay a brief anecdote? The folks taking the microphone at this shindig are pretty much the complete opposite. Each month, a group of intrepid writers is given one prompt and only 400-600 words to craft a story around it. They call themselves The Five Hundred, and a handful of them will be showing their stuff in the Goat Farm's Rodriguez Room in partnership with Vouched.
