Next Meetup

Shut Up & Write!™ - Auburn
Let's get together, sit down, shut up and WRITE. What we do: Meet at Baked and Brewed, sit down - and WRITE. Join other writers for an hour of focused writing! 10:00am - Arrival and getting seats, drinks, etc. and introductions. 10:15am - Write for one hour - get the lead out!!! 11:15am - Wrap up writing (or continue on your own). After 11:15am, feel free to stay and keep writing and/or getting to know one another. Use your creative juices to write!!! Get together with other people to have an hour of focused writing. We have found that given the hour, we tend to dig deep and find the words. What might have been a procrastination, the hour provides the avenue to get the words out!!! Notes: Electrical outlets are not always available, so if you plan to use a laptop, make sure it's fully charged. * Note - If you do sign up, please attend - OR CANCEL IF YOU CAN'T. It's not fair to those who could have attended. ** If there is sufficient demand, we can increase numbers in the future. *** Attendance is free, but please buy coffee, pastries, etc, to make it worthwhile to the proprietor. They have good coffee and great pastries here!

What we're about

Shut Up & Write!™ is more than a movement, more than a good idea. We’re a method of writing that delivers. As an international organization, we are thousands of writers in a worldwide community, but most importantly, we are writers who write together in a local cafe. Join us.

We have events every week, all over. Sometimes we talk after. Whatever you’re writing, whatever form it takes, wherever you are in your process, you won’t be the only one.

And if you need help with your writing, we offer that too.

Meetup Event Format
It is an empowering and rewarding experience to write an hour each week, at the same time and place. It serves as powerful support for building your daily writing discipline.

RSVP and please arrive 10–15 minutes early to get settled. At the Meetup our Organizer will lead introductions and then everyone will sit down and write.

Afterwards, feel free to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. The Shut Up & Write!™ format brings a social facet to a normally isolated craft.

Our Meetups are a safe space for writers to work on their craft. No one will read or critique your writing.

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

This is your time to write.
