NYC Shut Up & Write Meetup! - Columbus Circle

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

6-7 pm - Show up early, stake out a spot and either socialize or get a jump on writing.
7:00 - Start. Introductions, and we'll share what we're working on
7:05 - Get down to business. An hour of silence and solid writing!
8:05- Brief follow up. People are encouraged to share experiences & ideas, network or take off as they like. Feel free to keep writing if you've got the momentum going!

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for a session of focused writing. It may just be "pipe-cleaning" for now, but you'll feel better showing up at the page. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

WHERE: Argo Tea, the big table in the back.  A block or so off the Columbus Circle Subway Station.


Please, come on time! If you come late, we will have already started.
Bring headphones if you don't want outside noise distraction.

Please RSVP only if you can make it, and update as soon as possible if your plans change. We have had far too many no-shows.

You will see progress in your writing project by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. This is your practice/focus time, so I hope to see you there.

    The group and the idea are excellent. The challenge is finding a place where 10-15 people can gather comfortably.

    I used to go to the one in Astoria, but that stopped, so I should try to get back in on this. I work in Times Square, so it's not like I have far to go.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
