Seven At The Sevens is for writers interested in building a successful and supportive literary community.
-Princeton University Alumni Magazine
If you love writing, this book will make you feel connected with a passionate & funny group of people who share your love. The illustrations are memorable, & sometimes haunting. The quotes from Hemingway & others will inspire you. Goes with Charlie Haden's American Dream.
-American novelist Barry Eisler, San Francisco
A stroll down Charles Street in Beacon Hill feels like a step back in time the 19th century, in fact. Stop at 77 Charles St. & you'll find yourself at The Sevens Pub, a historic establishment that opened in 1933. If it happens to be a Tuesday night at 7, you'll often see a group of writers huddled in the left window of the pub, discussing everything from Walt Whitman to the origin of the universe. They are WritersAnonymous.
As you savor these succinct musings, you realize you do not need a lot of words to convey something poignant and powerful. It is above all the brevity of the language that is the engine that provides the inspiration that perhaps, will enable you to embrace the challenge with both trepidation and delight.

Due to this volume our campus book club is now a writers group.

On most good days, if we're not trying to suck the cerebral cortex out of some wannabe writer's eye sockets, at The Rag we like nothing more than the opportunity to vomit chunks on some new book. But this isn't the case with Seven At The Sevens. Buy it & read it.
-The Rag, Lower East Side, NY
"Elvis Costello, Angelina Jolie, Jason Schwartzman and Michelle Obama were all spotted recently with a new book believed to be a copy of SEVEN AT THE SEVENS, often described as Hemingway meets Kerouac and all hell breaks loose. The writers of WritersAnonymous.org are indeed living a satire of their own lives. However, this statement is both unsubstantiated and confusing." (The Onion, Chicago/NYC)
"It's in your best interest never to underestimate beautiful women or this beautiful book." (Student, NYU)
"The constraint of having to limit utterances to seven words is inspiring. They resemble the one-line poems of John Ashbery. Highly collaborative, like a friendly game in which everyone wins. The ultimate result is hilarity." (Writer's Digest - this text refers to the paperback edition)
