NYC Shut Up & Write Meetup! - Columbus Circle

Join other writers for an hour of focused writing!

6-7 pm - Show up early, stake out a spot and either socialize or get a jump on writing.
7:00 - Start. Introductions, and we'll share what we're working on
7:05 - Get down to business. An hour of silence and solid writing!
8:05- Brief follow up. People are encouraged to share experiences & ideas, network or take off as they like. Feel free to keep writing if you've got the momentum going!

If you're spending too much time THINKING about writing, come and join us for a session of focused writing. It may just be "pipe-cleaning" for now, but you'll feel better showing up at the page. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

WHERE: Argo Tea, the big table in the back. A block or so off the Columbus Circle Subway Station.

SOME TIPS:

Please, come on time! If you come late, we will have already started.
Bring headphones if you don't want outside noise distraction.

Please RSVP only if you can make it, and update as soon as possible if your plans change. We have had far too many no-shows.

You will see progress in your writing project by spending the minimum of a single hour per week on it. This is your practice/focus time, so I hope to see you there.

    We were about 15 this week and it was definitely too many people for this wonderful but tiny Argo. Either cap at 10 or we should find a new spot?! I liked the Lincoln Center atrium idea, but it often has free live music in the evenings.

    Sadly I wasn't able to make it last night since I had to work late. Looking forward to next week's gathering, however!

    Hi, this is my first meet up with this group. Was wondering is there a corner that you guys usually stake out at? Meaning I assume the place would be crowded, so how do we identify one another?

      Yep, the group will do their best to nab the big table in the back!
