• Shut Up & Write!™ Ann Arbor / South Side

    Online event

    We are now meeting virtually! Join our Discord server at https://discord.gg/BqFJdMz Join us for an hour of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 4 pm on Sunday afternoons. Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice. Instead of just thinking about writing, come and get some real writing done. SCHEDULE: 4:00 - SESSION 1: quick intros. 4:15 - timer starts: write for 1 hour. 5:15 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Morgan and York is open until 10 pm. OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 5:15. Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing. BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll be the person with the Shut Up & Write! sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer. Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at Morgan and York. What Should I Bring? Whatever you need to be able to write! Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons. There is public wifi and plenty of parking in back. GUIDELINES: Please thank our hosts by purchasing something.
