Shut Up & Write!™ Adelaide at Unley Library
• What we'll do Join us for an hour of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 6:30pm on Thursday nights. Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. No one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice. Instead of just thinking about writing, come and get some real writing done. SCHEDULE: Each session runs once a month on a Thursday evening from 6.30 pm - 7:30 pm December 20 (this is the last session for 2018) 2019 Dates: January 17 February 14 March 14 April 11 May 9 June 6 July 4 August 1 & 29 September 26 October 24 November 21 December 19 (this is the last session for 2019) The format will be as follows: 6:30 - quick intros. 6:35 - timer starts: write for 60 minutes. 7:35 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Unley Library closes at 8pm. Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing. BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll be the person with the Shut Up & Write!™ sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer. Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at Unley Library! • What to bring Whatever you need to be able to write! Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the general noise or the occasional conversation by other patrons. It's best to arrive with a charged battery for your device, if you aren't able there are some power points in the space you can use. • Important to know If you are a member of any public library in South Australia there is free wi-fi. Please ensure you bring your library card & if you can't remember your password we can assist on the night. TRAVEL / PARKING: There is parking along Oxford Terrace or in the Council car park off Oxford Terrace. If you are using public transport it's bus stop number 4 on bus route 190, 190B, 195, 195F, 196 or 196F. SEATING INFORMATION: The session is held upstairs or via lift access in the non-fiction area. GUIDELINES: You are more than welcome to bring along your own snacks or drinks.

What we're about

Shut Up & Write!™ is more than a movement, more than a good idea. We’re a method of writing that delivers. As an international organization, we are thousands of writers in a worldwide community, but most importantly, we are writers who write together in a local cafe. Join us.

We have events every week, all over. Sometimes we talk after. Whatever you’re writing, whatever form it takes, wherever you are in your process, you won’t be the only one.

And if you need help with your writing, we offer that too.

Meetup Event Format

It is an empowering and rewarding experience to write an hour each week, at the same time and place. It serves as powerful support for building your daily writing discipline.

RSVP and please arrive 10–15 minutes early to get settled. At the Meetup our Organizer will lead introductions and then everyone will sit down and write.

Afterwards, feel free to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. The Shut Up & Write!™ format brings a social facet to a normally isolated craft.

Our Meetups are a safe space for writers to work on their craft. No one will read or critique your writing.

“Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.“ - Gloria Steinem

This is your time to write.
