Shut Up & Write!™ Amsterdam
*this is the last meetup for 2018* From 7pm we will head over to The Tara to have a drink and celebrate our writing achievements throughout the year. Whether you have come to one session or you come every week, you are most welcome to join us! Sessions resume at the regular time on Tuesday evenings every week from 8th January onwards. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to the Amsterdam Shut up and Write Meetup! Weekly, silent writing sessions that draw on the effective pomodoro method. A concentrated hour of writing time in a supportive environment with a small group of writers in the fabulous Scheltema bookstore. Yay Tuesday evenings! We’ll meet at 17.30 on level 4 (or 3) and sit around one of the large tables in Scheltema Boekwinkel, have a chat and explain what we’re planning to work on, then enjoy an hour of silent writing from 17.45 to 18.45pm. Details: Write whatever you want - a novel, a thesis, a script, a poem - up to you Bring your own laptop or other writing tools Headphones recommended, so you can focus This is not a critique group - there are some really great writers groups offering critique and feedback, but this isn’t that kinda group Please respect those ‘in the silent zone’ if you arrive late Pop in, don’t pop in - this group is totally flexible and there’s no commitment required Wifi and delicious writing fuel available! Can't wait to see you there! Contact Katy on [masked] to be added into our Whatsapp group and if you need any help finding us.

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.
