NYC Shut Up & Write Meetup! - Columbus Circle

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

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.

7-8 pm - Show up early, stake out a spot and either socialize or get a jump on writing.
8:00 - Start. Introductions, and we'll share what we're working on
8:05 - Get down to business. An hour of silence and solid writing!
9:05- 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.

SOME TIPS:

Argo has plenty of outlets - we will be on the back, large table.
Seats are hard to come by, and I can only save so many, so please, come on time! If you come late, we might have already started.
The music and occasionally nonmember conversation can be loud, so bring headphones too.
WiFi is available with purchase.
It's a little chilly, so if you get cold bring a sweater.
And it goes without saying that buying a cup of joe or a snack from Argo for being nice enough to host us will bring you good writing karma.
If you aren't sure you can make it, please don't RSVP! Come on time or even a little early, as it can be difficult to save seats.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
