This meetup offers a very specific format of experience where we come together and write longhand from prompts.

We write for periods of time from three to 15 minutes -- stream of consciousness, pen-to-paper -- and then anyone may read back what they wrote with no feedback or critique.

This is a way for writers of all genres to be able to get their creative ideas flowing and to actually write while circumventing that Ego Editor who likes to trouble many of us -- the Inner Critique, The Debbie Down, the urge to sabotage have no place in this process; we are mighty together and those mischief makers have no place at our table or in our heads.

Come. Bring your pen. Paper. 

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."


ABOUT ME:
In 2007 I started the Midtown Writers Group in Minneapolis and they now have 1,388 members. I began that group tailored around a weekly group I attended in San Diego New Mexico at The Loft. That group had been run by a well-known author who charged $5 a meeting and it was phenomenal.

I hope you will join us!
