Shut Up and Write! East Bay

Join host Nina and other writers for two hours of focused writing!  It's all about whatever you need to write - short story, novel, poem, memoir, thesis, or a manifesto!  Bring a laptop, bring a pen, bring a notebook.  We'll introduce ourselves and then write!

Head to the back room and the organizer will announce the meet-up at 7:00.

7:00 - Introductions
7:10 - Shut up and Write!
8:50 - Brief Check-in
9:00- The Beanery closes.  For those interested there's two other cafes across the street that stay open til 10.

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.

    Topped off a productive day of writing. I look forward to this project being completed so I can spend more time on the projects I want to pursue. It's all writing so that's not too bad anyway!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
