Monkeys with Typewriters (MoWiTy) is an extreme writing group bent on hammering out our novels (or whatever projects we're working on) and having fun too. If infinite monkeys can create a masterpiece, so can we.

We do not limit ourselves to writing -- any creative endeavor a member feels like working on is appropriate for MoWiTy. During regular meetups, our members write, draw, blog, design, code, or work on whatever other projects they are up to.

The purpose of our meetup is to provide members with a few hours to work on their creative projects in a supporting environment. We generally meet weekly. A typical meeting is relatively unstructured: We meet up in a public space with free wifi. During the first 30 minutes of our meeting, we discuss our individual goals for the evening and the progress we've made since the last meetup. Then, we work independently on our projects for the rest of our time, quietly working and sometimes casually discussing our work.

We strive to create a productive, friendly and fun environment -- we hope you can join us!


Our main meetup is the Monkeys with Typewriters Meetup for Writing and Creating, which is our weekly meetup where we sit around and write and create together.

Due to popular demand, we've also added Monkeys with Red Pens, a writer's critique group. (NOTE: RED PENS IS CURRENTLY ON HIATUS.)

Occasionally, we host a social meetup, which is usually called Monkeys with [Something Festive]. During these we hang out and talk about writing, creating, and any other thing that comes up.

During the month of November, members are welcome to join the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) challenge with us! Learn more at

If you're a member and would like to participate in our Facebook group between meetings, please join us on Facebook. (Note: The Monkeys with Typewriters Facebook group is for members of the Meetup group only. If your name on Meetup is significantly different or undiscernible from your name on Facebook, please send a message to one of the admins or organizers so we'll know to add you!)

We also have a sister group, called Kittens with Typewriters, which meets during weekdays in Alexandria. KiWiTy is organized on Facebook -- if you're interested, you can join here.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
