About the event

Join us for an hour of writing. We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write among others writing. See if it’s true for you at 4 p.m. on Monday afternoons.

Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem, or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice. Instead of just thinking about writing, come and get some real writing done.

SCHEDULE: 3:45 p.m. - Arrive anytime and get settled 4:00 p.m. - This is when we start. Brief introductions. 4:05 p.m. - Start writing 5:05 p.m. - The End: chat, take off, or keep writing

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens before or afterwards. Connecting (and sometimes commiserating) with other writers can warm the solitary heart.

BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll be the person with the Shut Up & Write! sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer.

Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at Emporium Wines & Underdog Café.

What Should You Bring? Whatever you need to be able to write: paper, pens or pencils, laptop, charger. Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the occasional conversation by other patrons. (They didn't sign up to shut up.)
