The Writers’ Table is an informal community of writers in Seattle, WA. We define writer as anyone who writes, and are not concerned with whether or not you have previously published or publicly shared your work. We celebrate and support one another in our individual goals and endeavors, trusting the vision and artistry of each writer.

We gather to encourage accountability to our writing and meaningful conversation around writing and creative process. There is no common intention around the style or format of writing that we’re working on unless specifically stated in a session/series invite. Please read each session description carefully to know what you are getting into. 

We currently have three sessions per month:

2nd Sunday of the month: Coffee Shop Session in Fremont (open to all writing styles/no formal guidance)

4th Saturday of the month: Coffee Shop Session in South Lake Union (open to all writing styles/no formal guidance)

1st Saturday of the month:  Out of the Vacuum Closed Critique Group (This group is open to all writing styles, but follows a specific critique process. The group is closed and new members are invited in when others fall out. See Vanessa King with questions.)

Beginning Writers: Please note that this is not a formally taught group. You are more than welcome to join at any time, but the Coffee Shop sessions do begin with an hour of writing where everyone is self-guided and doing their own thing. If you’re in the early phases of finding your way and determining what you want to write, we recommend you bring a writing book to possibly read and supplement the hour of writing. The Richard Hugo House is a great place to start if you’re looking for actual writing classes.
