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 6pm on Mondays.

Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. Your first or 15th NaNoWriMo? We're there for you! 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.

6:00 - SESSION 1: quick intros.
6:15ish - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
7:15ish - (the end) Go around the circle and check in on where we are with our writing for the week, then chat / take off / keep writing.
Woods closes at 9 pm.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING: after we write. 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 Woods Boulevard!

What Should I Bring?
Whatever you need to be able to write!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons.
There are a few power plugs, but it's best to have your laptop charged before you arrive.
