The Fees:

There is no fee to attend, but in exchange for the private meeting room we are expected to make food and drink purchases. When you pay, please tell the barista that you are with our Meetup group so that your purchases can be tracked.

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!

    Very productive. Why did I not find this group 15 years ago? If I had about nine of these a week, I might be on top of things. Incidentally, would anyone else who's working on a screenplay like to shoot the bull about that or read a treatment (or what there is of it)?

    I just found this group and this sounds so awesome! This meetup is already full, but can we do another one up north/central?

      Hi Jessica. I don't have any plans to add more meetups to the roster at this time.

      If you want to attend Tuesday's meetup, add yourself to the wait list. I can almost guarantee people will drop off the list by Tuesday. When they do, everyone on the wait list will be notified by email that a spot has opened up. First come, first served. Hope this helps.
