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

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

    I seem to be coming down with something. This has been a fun month. Miss you guys. Don't work next week so I'll be there.

      Thanks, Christiann! It's a throat thing, it seems. Hoping it clears up with sleep. Fingers crossed.

    Will be stuck at my day job tonight. Are there weekly meetings? I'd love to get involved. Thanks!

    I'll bring more typewriters tonight for anyone to use. I agree with Tania - they do help break computer induced writer's block!
    Tania - Crash will have to wait until next week. We'll miss you!

    Profuse apologies for my miss this evening ... a fisherman from Conch Country sent me SOS for SEO and a IP publication to be edited - both due ASAP ... and other things knocking off my Wednesdays ... looking forward to reconnecting in November ... please take Bert up on his offer of a typewriter ... It helped me break through my writer's block! Happy writing!

      Sorry to miss you! I second what you said about Bert's typewriters - I tried one out last week and it was so much fun!
