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 6:30 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. 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.
6:30 - SESSION 1: quick intros.
6:45 - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
7:45 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Beulahland closes at 2:00 am.
OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 7:45. Writing is very 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 at Beulahland!

What Should I Bring?
Whatever you need to be able to write!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons.

TRAVEL / PARKING: Beulahland is located close to 28th and Burnside. It is easily accessible by bus - the 19 or the 20 are best - and there is street parking for drivers in the surrounding neighborhood.
SEATING INFORMATION: I'll likely be in the "Dine" section to the right when you enter - it's much quieter than the bar area. I'll update if that changes.
GUIDELINES: Beulahland has a full bar as well as coffee - good bar food, and pie. Happy Hour ends at 7. Please thank our hosts by purchasing something.
