Shut Up and Write! East Bay

Join other writers for two hours of focused writing!  It's all about whatever you need to write - short story, novel, poem, memoir, thesis, or a manifesto!  Bring a laptop, bring a pen, bring a notebook.  We'll introduce ourselves and then write!

Head to the back room and the organizer will announce the meet-up at 7:00.

7:00 - Introductions
7:10 - Shut up and Write!
8:50 - Brief Check-in
9:00- The Beanery closes.  For those interested there's two other cafes across the street that stay open til 10.

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.

    I was SO MAD to have to miss tonight, but I have a bug infestation that's made it miserable to sleep for several days. It needed to be dealt with tonight. I greatly look forward to attending my first event sometime very soon in the East Bay!

    This is just about perfect. Meet up, say hello, then write for two hours. Thanks to James for facilitating the session!

    First for me, too, but I've heard great things about Shut Up & Write! Working on revisions for a young adult novel.
