Ink Club: First Edition

The idea behind Ink Club is to give writers, artists and creative people of all types, the peer pressure nudge to sit down and actually be productive! (wow!) We'll combine focused Creative Time with breaks for socializing with the goal of making progress on our creative projects.

Format:

5:45pm to 6:30pm: Free time to arrive at the Cafe, eat, drink and socialize before getting creative.

6:30pm-7:15pm: Creative Time!

7:15pm-7:30pm: Time for a break and socializing. (or feel free to continue working right through the break if you're on a roll!)

7:30pm-8:15pm: Creative Time!

8:15pm: Time to perhaps share what we've been working on and say our good-byes until next time.

First rule of Ink Club, you don't talk during Creative Time! Okay, there can be talking, but the goal is to keep it to a minimum to create a quiet, focused environment.

We also have a Facebook group for updates, info and events (if we continue to have Ink Club!) at:

    I'm going to bring a power bar for those who might need to plug in their laptops etc, but if anyone else has one they can bring to share that would be greatly appreciated!

      I actually thought of this after I left the house this morning. I have an older laptop that will definitely need to be plugged in.

      You can show up any time, if you get there while we're in "Creative Time" you can just quietly get settled and join in. ;)

    I like the idea but I can't work if there are people around me. Also, I do not have a laptop at the moment. If you put all the socializing time together I might want to come to that.

    August 10, 2013

  • Kim R.

    I have artist block, this would be good!

    August 9, 2013

  • Marina

    Wow, what a great idea! Would love to come, but I will be in Spain on this date...

      Hopefully it will go well and we'll hold more that you'll be able to come to! (enjoy Spain...!)
