Next Meetup

Let's meetup and write (or edit)
Get together with writers and editors to work on your writing project. Any type of writing is relevant for this group: you can work on your thesis, marketing copy, novel, poetry, business plan or whatever writing project is occupying your mind right now. We operate with pomodoro rules – 25 minutes of quiet writing or editing, followed by a 10-minute networking break. You can use the networking time to meet other writers and seek answers to your writing problems. Each session involves three to four rounds of work. If you've never tried a Shut Up And Write (or Edit) session before, come along and see whether the structure is right for you. Entry is by gold-coin donation (to cover venue and afternoon tea costs) - recommended donation of $4 for the session only or $7 if you share afternoon tea. We take cash on arrival in an honesty system. This meetup is hosted by Brisbane-based writer/editor Judy Gregory. Judy is available for individual consultation and manuscript review (this is a fee-based service, not conducted during the Shut Up and Write sessions). Registrations are essential. If you register and are then unable to attend, please take your name off the list so that someone else can claim a seat. The clock will start at 1.15pm sharp.

What we're about

Calling writers and editors seeking quiet time to work with the structure of a timed writing session. Any style of writing or editing is welcome: you can work on your thesis, marketing copy, website, novel, poetry, magazine article … or whatever takes your fancy. We operate with pomodoro rules – 25 minutes of quiet writing or editing, followed by a 10-minute networking break. We run four rounds, with a 20 minute networking break to finish. If you’ve never tried a Shut Up and Write (or Edit) session before, come along and see whether the structure works for you. You can make use of the networking time to meet other writers and seek answers to your writing problems.
