What we're about

Shut Up and Write! Is a regular get-together at a café (or similar) where you prioritise writing over everything else (e.g. no checking email, no taking phone calls, no admin). It is an opportunity for writers to get together on a regular basis and focus upon short, intense bursts of writing in a supportive atmosphere.

Special Nature Outing: Shut Up + Write (+ Hike) in Fontainebleau!

Hello writers! For those wanting to escape Paris for a few hours on the last Sunday of April (28th) and May 26th), we are organizing a special Shut Up, Write and Hike in Fontainebleau! Our goal is to start the day at Fontainebleau by 11 am. The train departs Gare de Lyon at 10h11 and arrives Fontainebleau 10h56. The day will be flexible, depending on what everybody wants to do. For example, we could start by meeting up at a cafe for a bit of writing and some food. Then do some some sightseeing/hiking thereafter with a possible visit to Barbizon if some of you are interested. If only a few of you decide to join, I (Ingrid:) am happy to pick you up from Fontainebleau-Avon station. We would be done by 18h for the return train to Paris. If you are interested, please respond below as soon as possible so we can get organised. Many thanks. NOTE: FOR THOSE NOT UP FOR THIS EVENT, WE WILL STILL BE HAVING REGULAR THE SHUT UP & WRITE LAZY SUNDAY VERSION THE USUAL TIME AND PLACE! Looking forward to hearing from you all! Questions?
