What we're about

Calling Brisbane-based writers and editors seeking quiet time to work within the structure of a timed writing session and a place to talk about writing. 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. When we meet, we operate with pomodoro rules – 25 minutes of quiet writing or editing, followed by a 10-minute networking break.

Shut Up & Write (or Edit) Brisbane

Newmarket State School

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 donation (to cover venue costs) - recommended donation of $5 for the session. 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 as we sometimes have a waitlist. The clock will start at 1.00pm sharp.
