To anyone who has ever written anything and had it returned with so much red ink it looked like it had barely survived a street brawl: rejoice. 

Filmmaker Vernon Lott is celebrating the "deplorable," the "abysmal," the "inferior," the "atrocious." In short, his new documentary showcases Bad Writingin all its glory.

The film will feature interviews from writers such as George Saunders and Me Talk Pretty One Day author David Sedaris, as well as amateur writers reading their work aloud.

"I've written so many bad, bad things," Sedaris admits in the film's trailer. "And I think if I'd really looked at it and studied it, I never would've continued. But it seemed important to write something bad and then move on."

No release date has been set for the film, so in the meantime, victims of the red pen can check out the trailer here:
