Sit Down, Shut Up, and Write

Indigo: Editing, Design, and More

Every Thursday (except holidays), join us to for a dedicated hour of quiet writing. Arrive between 6 and 6:30 p.m. for some informal social time—then get down to quiet writing from 6:30 to 7:30. The group is open to writers of all levels and all genres. Parking is available on the street, or there is a SmartPark at 10th and Morrison, which is also a MAX stop. You can catch the streetcar or just walk north four blocks to our building. The door to the North Pacific Building is locked in the evenings, so use the callbox to call Indigo and we'll let you in. Come upstairs to the second-floor conference room. Happy writing!
