There is no fee to attend. But in exchange for the private meeting room, we are expected make food and drink purchases. When you pay, please tell the barista that you are with our Meetup group so that your purchases can tallied onto our account.
So that's it. No more excuses. No more procrastination. Fire up your laptops and sharpen your pencils. Then join us to sit down, shut up, and write!
