Caffe Romanza is located in the loft inside Books, Inc. two blocks from the Mountain View train station on Castro Street. Many, but not all tables, have access to electrical outlets so make sure your batteries are fully charged, just in case. Showing our gratitude to the owner through our patronage is always appreciated.

The agenda will be:

7:00 - 7:15: Introductions

7:15 - 8:15: Shut Up and Write!

8:15 - 10:00: Continue writing or leave as you choose.

A note of clarification. We are a writing club, not a writers club. Our primary purpose is to get together with other writers and write for an hour on a regular basis in the company of other writers. A secondary purpose is to offer an opportunity to meet other writers in our area. If you wish to grab a bite to eat and socialize, you should come a little early because at 7:15 the writing hour starts. If you want to have an extended discussion with someone, you should continue after 8:15 or arrange to meet with them at another time, perhaps by coming earlier to the next meeting.

Of course, if you are serious about writing, you will be writing a lot more than one hour a week, and our meetings will be simply a chance to change up your routine, get out of your house or office, gain a sense of belonging to the writing community and profit by giving and receiving encouragement from people who understand writing, its challenges and opportunities.
