NYC Shut Up & Write Meetup! - Brooklyn

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

1:30 - Show up early, stake out a spot and either socialize or get a jump on writing.
2:00 - Start. Introductions, and we'll share what we're working on.
2:05 - Get down to business. An hour of silence and solid writing!
3:05- Brief follow up. People are encouraged to share experiences & ideas, network or take off as they like.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for a session of focused writing. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

WHERE: Starbucks, table in the back. If it's warm out, we will be outside.


Make sure to charge your laptop ahead of time.

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.

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.

    Hey guys, we're in the back, as in outside and down the stairs. Find the back door with the psl cup on it and go through it, then look down off the balcony and there we are!!!

    I'm currently working on two projects, a manga series and a screenplay. These meetups have been helping me to focus and complete these projects.
