What we're about

For more virtual events, join our Online Events Meetup here: https://www.meetup.com/shutupandwriteonlineevents/

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.

Want to know more? Check us out: www.shutupwrite.com. Or get in touch: questions@shutupwrite.com.

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.

Location visible to members

We will be meeting outside at the pavilion in Market Park, in The Cannery development, until further notice.
I will keep the zoom information on here just in case we need to use it last minute.

DURING THE CV-19 PANDEMIC WE WILL BE HOLDING VIRTUAL MEETINGS. YOU MAY JOIN US ONLINE:

We have set up 2 video meetings with Zoom. This may sound complicated, but it is really EASY, even for the somewhat tech-challenged.
~We start with a video meeting at the beginning at NOON so everyone has an opportunity to introduce themselves and talk about what they plan to work on for the hour.
~At 12:30 WE SHUT UP AND WRITE FOR ONE HOUR~
~At 1:30 we have a second video meeting at the end of that hour to check-in and stick around to chat a bit if you like. This is all free and FUN! Here is opening meeting information:

We hope you will join us online for now.

When we get back to meeting in person again....
Bring your own personal writing project.

We will meet in the Community Room in the center of The Bartlett Commons Apartment Complex, which is located in "The Cannery" development in North Davis.

The Front of the building faces a little kiddie play park that is visible from the road, and we will be in building behind it.

There are plenty of places to plug in, and a variety of surfaces to write.
The space if fully accessible, with level paths to the building, and handicapped parking available. There is also lots of street parking in front and back of the building.
There are also accessible restrooms.

A kitchenette area available.
I suggest you bring your own snacks and drinks, and cups or mugs for hot drinks. I will provide a kettle for tea and/or french press coffee if there is a demand. Please clean up after yourself :)
Of course ALL WRITERS at ALL LEVELS are welcome.
We will start with an (optional) short introduction of yourself and what you are working on. I plan to set the timer at 12:00 and we will "SHUT UP AND WRITE" for 1 hour. There will be about 30 minuets after 1:00 to tidy up, and optional socializing time.
IF YOU ARRIVE LATE, no worries! Just quietly walk in and start writing!!
