What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
No preparation needed. Just bring something to write with and on. We'll gather inside the main MIT lobby at the Mass Ave entrance (it's the room with the cupola ceiling and cavernous interior) , then find an empty classroom to write in. I'll post the room for latecomers, but it may take a couple of minutes to do so --- so if you arrive late and see nobody just check the meetup comments. We'll quietly write for 75 minutes (no cells, bleepers, car alarms, experimental sonic weaponry, or video game consoles). Then, anyone who wishes to read may do so. If there's a lot of people I may use a signup sheet and put some limits on things. In the past, meetings have usually kept to 2-2.5 hrs. If you arrive late, please enter quietly, find a seat and begin writing. There will be a chance to chat a bit before and after people read. On the off-chance we get displaced (somebody has the room reserved), we'll just migrate to another nearby classroom or space and keep writing. This happens on rare occasion and we just politely vacate and move. Getting there: Everyone knows the way to get to MIT is hard work! Bus: The 1 bus stops right in front of 77 Mass Ave Train: There nearest stops are the Kendall and Central Sq Red lines. Kendall probably is a bit closer and in bad weather you can walk the entire way through the tunnels of MIT (if you have nerves of steel and can best the spirits of disgruntled graduate students which wander the halls afflicting the unwary). Parking: Others have had success finding parking along memorial drive around 6-6:30 so it may be worth a shot.
