6:30 to 7:00 (The "Sit Down" part): The first thirty minutes is reserved for introductions, chit-chat, purchasing food and drink, etc.
7:00 to 8:00 (The "Shut Up, and Write" part): We stop talking PROMPTLY at 7:00 and write for one hour.
8:00: After the hour has concluded you can continue writing, leave, talk, or do whatever trips your trigger. Please don't disturb those still working. Likewise, please don't give others the stink-eye if they are talking amongst themselves.
Depending on the size of the group, we might have to spread out to multiple tables. Please charge your laptop batteries or bring and extension cord / power strip as there are only a few outlets. As always, the earlier you arrive, the better your choice of seating.
NeWorld Cafe closes at 8:00 but we are allowed to linger a little longer while wrapping up your work and polishing off your dinner.

There is no fee to attend, but I encourage everyone to support our local businesses by making a purchase.So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!
