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 12:00 every other Saturday afternoon. Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are invited to write it with us. 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.

For us to accomplish that, please turn off ringers and other sound effects before starting. Thanks!

12:00 - 12:15 Quick intros.
12:15 - write for 1+ hour.
2:00 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing.

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 2:00. Writing is 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 in Keansburg!

Our sessions will continue until June 29, and based on how things shape up, we will then schedule more dates with the library. We may also add walk on the beach or free movie after our writing session next round!

What Should I Bring?
