Monkeys With Typewriters Meetup For Writing & Creating

From 7PM to 10PM, we'll meet at the Town Hall at the Artisphere for an evening of writing and creating. Bring whatever project you're working on (or your laptop, notebook or sketchbook if you're starting something new) and let's create something together!

In the first 30 minutes of our meeting, we get set up and discuss our goals and progress on our projects. After that, we independently work on our projects until about 10PM.

We usually meet in the upper level of the Artisphere's Town Hall (to get there, go up the escalator and then up the stairs), though if there is no space you can find us on the lower level of the Town Hall. We'll be the group with tables pushed together -- you should see us as you walk up the stairs. Feel free to bring your own food or drinks, or pop out during the meeting to get a snack from one of the nearby restaurants.

We also now have a backup location. In case we are unable to meet at the Artisphere or there is an event there inhospitable to our writing way of life, we will relocate at the Cosi around the corner, at 1801 N Lynn St, Arlington, VA (intersection of 19th and Lynn Street). The friendly staff at the front desk of the Artisphere can provide directions.

For those who are driving, you can park in the garage at the Artisphere for free if you get the ticket validated at the front desk. The Artisphere is also accessible from the Rosslyn Metro station on the Orange/Blue lines. Driving and transit information can be found here:

Please RSVP if you can make it -- we hope to see you soon!

Also, join our Facebook group if you like that sort of thing! Here's a link:

    Enjoyed the meetup. I feel more productive at Cosi's and went there first to get a salad before going to artisphere, but I learned from my first meetup to see if there's any members there before going to the Artisphere just in case. It paid off this time!! Got the first draft of my speech done!

    Need to switch to the alternate site after arriving at Artisphere generated confusion and a later start. It is less conducive to productive work.

      David, we use the Artisphere for free and are not exclusively entitled to their space. We watch their public calendar, but we have no way to be 100% sure they have room for us until we arrive. Please keep in mind that we're an informal and no-cost group -- that means the occasional last-minute change, and it's the reason why the backup location is listed in the weekly invite.
