If you have a current writing project, tell us a bit about it.

I've published a metric boatload of newspaper articles, but that was in another life as a journalist. I came to Shut Up & Write to give birth to a book, so that it's no longer inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to. Some call it non-fiction narrative. I call it a warped memoir of essays, in the tradition of David Sedaris.


My own Meetup group (a hiking club) led to a girl, who led me to Shut Up & Write. Way leads on to way, as Robert Frost wrote.

What Brian Patrick H. is saying about this Meetup Group

Shut Up & Write has become my wellspring for motivation, energy and support. I love these sessions.
