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: David Rubenstein Atrium, 62nd and Broadway.


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.

    Is there enough room for so many writers? As I'm not certain I can make this which would be my first meet-up I am not rsvping-- but I will try to be in the neighborhood early and hope to join.

      There is a lot of seating in the atrium, no one reserves any seats you just grab what you can find. The group tends to try and bunch together against the wall under the projection on the side closest to 'wichcraft.

      Thanks! Will definitely be at the next one, and look forward to checking out the atrium, etc. I feel like I've just admired from the outside... thanks for the info!
