What we're about

We’re looking for hosts to start more in-person events! Go to https://shutupwrite.com/organizers to sign up.

For online events, check out our Online Events Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/shutupandwriteonlineevents.

Shut Up & Write hosts free in-person and online writing events for writers all over the world. Our goal is to ensure that every writer, regardless of genre or skill level, has access to the community, accountability, and resources they need to be successful in their personal writing goals. Our events use our proven formula: a few minutes of introductions, an hour of focused writing, and a final check-in to share the hour's progress.

What to Expect

RSVP and please arrive 10–15 minutes early to get settled at an in-person event. Our host will lead introductions and then everyone will write for a quiet, focused period of time.

Afterward, feel free to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. Our events are a safe space for writers to work on their craft. No one will read or critique your writing.

For more information, visit https://shutupwrite.com, or email us at questions@shutupwrite.com. To learn more about our events, check out our Getting Started Guide at https://shutupwrite.com/getting-started-guide.

Shut Up & Write!™ Munich - IN PERSON

Needs a location

Welcome! Munich based but English speaking.

COVID tests or proof of vaccination are required**

Join us for an hour of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers.

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.
SCHEDULE (roughly):

6:00-6:20ish - SESSION 1: chat & intros.
6:20 - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
7:20 - chat / take off / keep writing for another timed hour (starting at ~7:45).

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens after we're done with the first/second writing hour. Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing.

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 should be enough sockets to charge your devices, but make sure to charge them just in case! :)

GUIDELINES: Please thank our hosts by purchasing something.
