We write with pen and paper (leave your laptop at home, unless you need assistive tech) to prompts during the meetup. We focus on the creativity and support, not critique.

There's no degree of separation. No fame. No ego. Just writers writing. Authentic. Whimsical. Vulnerable. "It's all true, none of it's true, don't ask."

We often spend too much time thinking about writing instread of writing. Our group meets to spend time writing. After we get our coffee, we pick a prompt (phrases, pictures) and a time period of a few minutes (2-7 minutes is normal). For that time period, we write on that prompt, using paper and pen. We then pass the mike around for anyone who wants to read.

We don't critique our work. Our goals are to get words on the page and support our creative process.

RSVPs are optional - RSVP if you a have a chance, but please feel free to join us without an RSVP.

Park free in the ramp for an hour and a half. The Midtown Global Market is also easy to get to by bus (check out the 21) or bike (close to the Midtown Greenway bike trail).

We encourage our members to sign up to lead for a morning or more. We need volunteers to keep the group going. Go on...sign up! It's fun (and easy).

We have been meeting every week since March of 2007.

Please join us! We always welcome newcomers!

We also have a blog for regular Saturday participants to share their work. You can read our stuff here:

You need to come regularly on Saturday to get information on how to sign up to post.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
