Join us for an hour or two of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 11:00 a.m. on Monday mornings. Come before doing some shopping or if you work nearby, spend your lunch break working on your writing.
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.

11:00 - quick intros and chit-chat
11:15 - SESSION 1 timer starts: write for 30 minutes
11:45 - take a break or keep writing
12:00- SESSION 2 timer starts: write for 45 minutes (take off or stay and write some more)
12:45 - discussion, feedback and suggestions for future sessions
1:00 - the end - take off, stay and socialize or keep writing for as long as you want

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 Corner Bakery!

What should you 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.
