What we're about

Is distraction halting the progress of your story? Are you warring with the ever persistent enemy who's name is Writer's Block? Or would you'd like the company of fellow, goal-focused and like-mined writers such as yourself? If you answered yes to one or all of the above, then join us! No matter your genre, skill level, or your published or not, we welcome all to join this group.

We typically meet every Wednesday at the Barnes & Noble in Paramus NJ, but we do check out other writer-friendly locations within the area as well. Some nights a month, we don't end the fun after our Barnes and Noble meetups and we continue the night with either further writing at local Starbucks stores or even some drinks and karaoke at a local bar. We also host special events like wine and writing at Aldo's in Wyckoff NJ and other fun actives. And if you're an artist or would prefer to draw then you're more than welcome to bring your sketch-pad or whatever else you use. Bring your lap-tops, writing pads, sketch-pads, whatever! We're close by, we're chill and we'll help you reach your writer's goal whatever it is.

Coffee and Writing at Barnes and Noble

Location visible to members

Bring your lap-top, tablet, or writing pad. Bring your WIP (work in progress), finished work, or your brainstorming ideas. We'll chat, bounce ideas off between us, help/critique any work and have a writing sess as we enjoy coffee. IMPORTANT NOTICE: • IF YOU RSVP TO THIS EVENT, BUT ARE UNABLE TO MAKE IT, PLEASE COMMENT ON THE MEETUP EVENT AND LET US KNOW! • Due to high attendance rate, we have a 15 attendee limit per event (at B&N). Regulars (attendees who regularly attend and receive membership) get priority over visitors. Keep in mind that not all regulars RSVP so please message Ray the president a day before a scheduled meeting if attendance exceeds 8 people). • New members, please do not show to a meeting without RSVP, especially if attendance limit has reached maximum. We won’t have enough chairs available and no, we won’t find one for you. It’s first come, first served. It’s hard enough getting tables at the B&N with 15 as it is. • New members do not have to present their work or take part in readings on their first meeting. Thats purely up to you. • In the event the president, Ray, is unable to attend, meetings will be headed by either VP Yale Katz or VP AJ Bartholomew. If the president and both vps are not president, the meeting will be cancelled. • Please be civil and friendly. We'll start off with introductions at 7:30 and then from there on we'll do our thing. Looking forward to seeing everyone there. ~ Ray
