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 on the lower level of the Town Hall (on the second level of the Artisphere). We'll be the group with tables pushed together -- you should see us as you come up the elevator. If there is no space or an event on that level, you can find us on the upper level of the Artisphere's Town Hall (to get there, go up the stairs after going up the escalator). 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 that is especially 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.

Getting there by car or Metro: For those who are driving, you can park for FREE in the garage at Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd) if you get your parking ticket validated at the Artisphere front desk. The Artisphere is also accessible from the Rosslyn Metro station on the Orange/Blue lines. More 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!

    Sorry I couldn't make it yesterday--I had to work late and the commute to the Artisphere is over an hour for me. Hope to make it next week.

    Nice folks, and a good balance of socializing and heads-down work.

    Excited to meet everyone! I am recovering from surgery I had a couple weeks ago, and was hoping this was the week I could get back out there. It looks like I'll be ready next week. See you soon!

    I might be a bit late tonight, possibly have a late evening interview (fingers crossed!).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
