Come by for an hour of evening writing with fellow creative folks at a great local cafe. Everyone works on their own thing, no obligation to share—just show up and make any kind of words happen. If you're spending too much time thinking about writing, come by for an hour of focused writing. Why is Shut Up & Write(!) so effective? (

7:00 - quick check-in - what will you work on?
7:15 - shut up and write for 1 hour
8:15 - quick check-in - how did it go? Feel free to keep writing. Barking Mad closes at 9:00pm.

Whatever you need to be able to write! Add headphones if you prefer your own soundtrack to the cafe’s music or typical noise.

Barking Mad has fast WiFi and several outlets.

Take Exit 11 off of I-270 if you're driving. There's street parking all around.
