NYC Shut up and Write Meetup! Starbucks on 34th and 5th

  • If this is your first time, please remember to bring a piece of writing to work on! We are a writing-only group - you are free to read and critique before or after meetings, but we do not do any sharing of work or offer critiques during the meet up itself.

    Our meetup is at the bottom level of the Starbucks in the Empire State Building on Wednesday. Be wary! There are many Starbucks in this hood. You want the one that's in the Empire State Building with the entrance on 34th Street. It is across the street from Desigual.

    Please update your RSVP early if you have a change of plans, other, you are taking a spot away from another potential writer. We've had a lot of no-shows and late cancellations, and by not showing up, you are stealing a spot from another writer.

    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.

    Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!


    7:00p Gather

    7:05p Introductions

    7:10p Start Writing

    8:10p Break for check in

    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: Starbucks, 34th Street and 5th Avenue, next to Chipolte. It's the one in the Empire State Building, you can't miss it!

    NOTE: There are some outlets and free Wi-Fi. Recommend headphones anyway, it's a large space.

    I arrived before 7 and waited until 8. I did not see anyone from this group or a sign indicating there was a scheduled meetup.
