Shut-Up & Write! (or illustrate)

What we're about

Not all creative people are looking for criticism. Some just want inspiration, friends, and the chance to be creative with others who just get it. While originally a writers' group, this group is going to tour great coffee houses, where members will have the opportunity to do art or writing alongside each other. We'll be each others' cheerleaders on our journey, whether that be writing your memoir, standing in front of a microphone reading a poem or singing out loud, or just having friends to call when writers' block, or getting rejection from a gallery, a publisher or producer makes you feel like screaming.

Some planned events may include artists and writers' hikes, travel or retreats. We might have a dinner at a restaurant just to talk shop and exchange stories.

Or we might meet at a coffee house or the beach to just make our art, write, edit or anything that makes you feel inspired or creative in a supportive, friendly and fun atmosphere.

Ever geek out at a Sci-Fi conference with a masquerade ball? Or get inspired by hearing Stan Lee or Stephen King speak live and sign your book? Hear about all the best events and become part of the who-you-know crowd here. And great free or cheap writers' and artists' conferences pop up all over the place, and it's better to have other creative friends there for support and networking. Collaborations welcome!
