Monkeys With Typewriters Meetup For Writing & Creating (Weather Permitting)

  • Warning: Possible Superstorm Sequester Cancellation! Please check the website for confirmation before you come out to this meetup, thanks!

    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: http://www.artisphere.com/visit.aspx

    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: https://www.facebook.com/groups/224936240950737/

      Yeah, I don't know if we'll have any snow at all, but at least we can stay warm and dry at home :) Glad you got a lot done today!

    I got a message from the yarn bomb art project coordinator ( knitters & crotcherers) that artisphere is closed today/tonight. Just sharing :-)

      Thanks! Yeah, it looks like we'll cancel since the Artisphere is closed. Of course, anyone who really wants to could still go write at Cosi.

    We're watching for closings tomorrow. Please stay tuned -- if the weather is as bad as most of the forecasts we're seeing, we plan to cancel the March 6 meeting. If we're cancelled, we can all have virtual writing meetups in our own secure locations :)

    We still hope to make the Wed session, but it is weather dependent for us. The kind of bad snow that WashPost is touting will keep us at home. Dave and Terry Jones
