Writers & Artists Session

If you're spending too much time THINKING about getting something done, come and join us for a session. You'll feel better showing up. No one will see what you've done , or give you unsolicited advice.  Shut Up and Write! (or illustrate) is a place to create in the company of others on a regular basis. Writing (and art), whether as a profession or as a hobby, is an isolating activity.  We provide these meetings as a way of developing a community of creative people. We welcome people who are serious about their craft, or just having trouble staying focused or looking to get started, and are looking for the companionship of other writers.

It's always an empowering and rewarding experience. You will see progress in your writing or creative project with friends and while having fun.  After everyone's socialized and had a nice time getting to know each other for about half an hour, the facilitator will lead introductions and possibly discuss personal creative successes such as getting published or overcoming resistance in some small way.  No critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty.

We hope to see you there!

7:00 - Socialize and meet each other
7:20 - Introductions
7:30 - Join us in writing, drawing, working, or just continue to chat (those who continue to chat will separate from those getting down to work for the hour)
8:30 - The Bellydancers and Drum Circle arrive!  People can continue to work, chat, or take join in with the drum circle if you'd like. InasaniTea is open until 10 pm.  InsaniTea's belly-dancing and drum circle event on Tuesday nights is a unique experience.

And if you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for a session of focused writing. You'll feel better showing up. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

WHERE: InsaniTea Cafe, Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ.  In addition to comfy couches and awesome tea, InsaniTea has FREE WIFI in their store that works very well, so please come with laptops if you'd like.  ***And on Tuesdays, there's a belly-dancing group at InsaniTea after our event - always entertaining!
