Shut Up & Write! LA

You will see progress in your writing by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. This is your practice/focus time, so we hope to see you there.

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!
7:00 - introductions.
7:10 - Get down to business
8:10 - finish up and have a brief check-in
8:15 - You can continue to work, chat with other writers, or take off as you like.

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come 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.

Note: Electrical outlets are not always available, so if you plan to use a laptop, make sure it's fully charged.

    I'm so glad I came. I will plan to make them as often as I can. It was productive. The location is perfect. Thank you.

    It was great to spend an hour actually writing instead of daydreaming about it. I'll be back.

    Samantha...I live nearby...do you do a night of writing in Agoura every week?

      Hi Ellen! Currently, we are only in Calabasas EOW, so the next meet up there will be on May 6. Once the attendance in Calabasas picks up, I will likely start hosting a meet up there every week.

    I'll be hosting at Starbucks at Agoura/Las Virgenes tonight, and EOW. Monday nights at 7:00. Give the new location a try!

    Hello. First timer here. Does the location change every week?

      No we have Encino every week and Calabasas every other week. Join us at a location convenient to you.

      Thanks! Calabasas is a bit of a hike, but I'll definitely be able to join on Monday in Encino :)

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.
