What we're about

Having trouble focusing on your writing, or simply want a change of scene from your usual writing space? If so then come to Shut up and Write! for an hour of focused writing in an informal relaxed atmosphere. This group is for writers of any genre and you do not have to share your work. The idea is to make the act of writing fun and relaxing without the pressure of giving/receiving critiques. It can be really helpful to be in the company of other people with the same goal and it's surprising how productive you can be in just an hour.

PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THIS GROUP UNLESS YOU WILL BE ATTENDING MEETUPS. This group is limited to 50 members, any members who have not attended a meetup within 2 months of joining will be removed from the group to accomodate people who want to join. I get a lot of requests and I want as many people to come and write with us as possible so please don't join just to clog up space :)
