Online Event: Shut Up & Write via Zoom


Staying at home to do your civic duty during the COVID-19 pandemic? Join us for an hour of writing from the comfort of your own home.

We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with others, even if we’re all just hanging out online together. See if it’s true for you at 5:00 PM on Thursday evenings.

Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. Instead of just thinking about writing, come and get some real writing done. And don’t worry, no one will see what you've written or give you unsolicited advice.

5:00 - Quick introductions
5:15 - Timer starts: write for 1 hour
6:15 - The End: chat, take off, or keep writing

A computer with working camera and microphone, a good internet connection, and optionally, headphones.

Technical difficulties are part and parcel of getting together online.

If you’ve never used your computer for an online meeting, take a few minutes before we meet to familiarize yourself with how to use Zoom by reviewing the below tutorial:


If you run into technical issues, remember that this is the time you’ve carved out for yourself and your writing. Whether or not you were able to join our online meet-up, go ahead and get your writing started, then leave a comment below to let us know how it went for you.
