Shut Up & Write! helps writers tell their story. We offer free, weekly, nation-wide events that foster local writing communities. Our Meetups help members reach their writing goals in a supportive, social setting.  Writing—whether it's approached professionally or as a hobby—doesn't have to be isolating. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre or medium. We have members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more. 

For more information, please visit our website: www.shutupwrite.com For any questions, please contact questions@suandw.com. 

Meetup Format 

Making the time to write one hour each week is an empowering and rewarding experience. It can serve as a powerful base for building your daily writing discipline. 

If you RSVP that you are coming, then please arrive 10–15 minutes early. The organizer will lead introductions and then the group will write for an hour. Afterwards, there will be 15–30 minutes of social time to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. There should be no critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty. 

“Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.“ - Gloria Steinem
