Academic Writing Group
New York, NY
Ph.D students, Post-Docs, and early career professors working on their writing projects. We write in solidarity, along side one another, in quiet co-working sessions. The group normally meets in person but now (due to COVID), we write together on ZOOM. We meet and write, usually for 3 hours, taking short 5-minute breaks every 50/60' of continuous writing. Join us to defeat the sense of isolation academia entails. In our writing group, we support each others' goals and increase our productivity! And we drink a lot of coffee ☕️ as well, of course!!! \*\*The group is restricted to people working in academia (PhD students/candidates/post-docs/professors) \*\*Note: The writing group does not provide feedback on your writing (proofreading, works-in-progress, etc.) we use the time to actually write in solidarity!!

Midtown Ladies's Social Group
New York, NY
Welcome to Midtown Ladies Social Group! Sometimes it's tough meeting people and making genuine friendships in the city, especially if you're new, moved neighborhoods, work from home or even if just most of your friends have moved to the suburbs. So if you're into happy hours, walking/ jogging in the park, brunches, museums, the theater, or book clubs lets get together! I'm hoping to keep most events pretty small so that we can actually build genuine and lasting friendships! Guidlines and Rules: 1\. This is an all inclusive group\! Any rude\, demeaning or cruel comments to anyone or any group of people will result in you getting kicked out\. 2\. Because we are trying to create meaningful friendships and RSVP's are limited\, if you no show twice you'll be removed from the group\. This obviously does not include emergencies or notice given in advance \(cause I get it\.\.\.\. life happens\!\)\. 3\. If there is an event that requires payment in advance and you cant make it\, you are responsible for finding someone on the waitlist to buy that ticket and take your place\. 4\. Due to the number of men who have tried to join this group\, only accounts with profile pictures of your face will be approved\. If you are uncomfortable having a picture of your face up please message me\. Most importantly we're here to have fun and meet some amazing women!
The Black Nerds of NYC
1\. The purpose of this group is to create a place where black nerds can meet other black nerds to hang out and just discuss nerdy things\. Sometimes in life\, we deal with people who aren't really into the things we dig and as a result long to have conversations about our nerdy hobbies and passions\. 2\. Anyone who has ever wanted to know if Black Panther could go toe to toe with Black Manta or if Zasalamel could scrap with Nagoriyuki\, or if Killer Bee really does have what it takes to fight Zaname Tosen\, then this is the place for you\. Also if you're black\. 3\. The initial events will be Zoom video meetings where people can meet and greet\. After that\, there will be physical meet\-ups that may range from watch parties and gaming sessions \(video and table top\.\)

Please be able to use a computer/android or iphone, and pay by Zelle.** **Our events include brunches, book discussions, friendly chat, travel near and far, crafts, adventures, NYC, local theater, gardens, concerts, canasta, keeping fit, even star gazing or anything of interest to you and a few others. Most events take place in Nassau.

Please understand that not all membership requests are approved.** **We do have admission standards. You are welcome to join if you are 50+, if you don't have a pattern of no shows with other groups, are free of drama, and if you can bring a smile to the our next meetup. If you are normal, sane, and secure, you'll get in! Please have a real, recognizable photo of your face when you join, and a valid email address. If you are a cat, puddle or flower, you won't get in. We want to be able to recognize you at an event, and greet you as a friend.** **We do post pictures of group events on Meetup and Facebook, so when you join, you are agreeing to be photographed.** **Join my other group: [http://www.meetup.com/Travel-Friends-Near-and-Far/](http://www.meetup.com/Travel-Friends-Near-and-Far/)** **Our annual dues are $20 per year collected annually (year ends on April 14), paid at your first meetup, or by Zelle.
