If you are are writer like me, Twin Peaks is as influential to you as any novel. Lynch’s ground breaking, beautiful, bizarre, and just plain amazing TV show influenced a whole generation of artists in every medium.

So I was excited to see that today author Shya Scanlon launched The Twin Peaks Project. The project invites “authors to write about their experience with the show, its influence, and its impact.” The first piece is an essay by Scanlon himself at The Believer Logger called “On Continually Revisiting Twin Peaks.” There are many more pieces to come including, perhaps, something from you if you want to join.

(And if you haven’t watched the show yet, what are you waiting for? It’s even on Netflix, so start today!)
