Wade Gasque Write Club performance Ecstasy

Here’s a video of my most recent reading at Write Club, a storytelling event where two writers are each given a word and a week to write a 7-minute something-or-other inspired by that word. Then they face off in a mock battle (a la Fight Club). My word was ECSTASY.

I wrote about my delicious/delirious descent into mysticism over the past few years. I’d never really spoken about this in public before that night. It was a bit of a coming out experience for me (all over again) and it was extraordinarily exciting and cathartic and so many fellow mystics came out of the woodwork sharing their own love of all things woo.

This performance helped propel the creation of this website. I hope you enjoy! ✨
