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.

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.

2:30pm - SESSION 1: quick intros.
2:45 - timer starts: write for 1 hour.
3:45 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Library closes at 5:00pm.

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens after the one hour writing session. 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 the central library.

What Should I Bring?
Whatever you need to be able to write!
Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block any overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons.
Your laptop may have to be pre-charged as there are limited plugs or sometimes none available.

PARKING: It is free for 3 hours to park in the library garage. Remember to validate your ticket.
SEATING INFORMATION: We will sit at the large tables on the second floor that are next to the escalators
