Shut Up and Write! East Bay (San Leandro) Marathon

  • Apr 7, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join fellow writers for a marathon session of focused writing.

Hosted by Lisa Carrera.

10:00am - Check-in, Introductions. Sign-In Sheet.

10:15am - Write for one-and-a-half hours

11:30am: Place lunch order and pay for it, if you decide to eat in-house.

11:45am - Lunch break, check-in, and socializing

12:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

02:00pm - Check-in, beverage/snack, chat

02:30pm - Write for one-and-a-half hours

04:00pm - Session dismissed.  Keep writing or start talking.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for some marathon sessions, 4.5 hour or more of focused writing!

1) We'll try to sit close to each other, but on a Sunday that's not guaranteed.

2) Order something from Zocalo Coffeehouse - we want to keep them happy and keep coming back!  And be sure to have lunch here as well, then they'll really like us.

3) If you arrive late try not to disrupt the writing flow.  Find a seat somewhere, start writing, and we'll check in with you at the next break. 

4) During breaks, make sure to purchase something from the cafe if you can. That will cause them to want us to come back again and again.

5) If you can't make it, please un-RSVP at least a few days in
advance if at all possible. Late RSVP changers have prevented
eager writers from attending past overly subscribed Marathons!

      Hi Miyo, where did you leave it? Was it at the big table with the rest of us? If so, we didn't see it. Duna and I were the last to leave and we cleared the table. I didn't see anything at the big table.
