Hi All,

Let's gather at 10am for a quick check in, and then we can settle at a large table or spread out, however space and preferences guide us, for an hour (or more) of concentrated 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.
10:00AM - quick intros.
10:15 - timer starts: write for 1.5 hours.
11:45 - chat / take off / or keep writing till noon.

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 Vino!

What Should I 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.

- Ask for 2hr free parking voucher!
- Electrical outlets are not always available, so if you plan to use a laptop, make sure it's fully charged.
- There is no charge, but purchasing a snack or coffee from Vino Locale is a good way to show our appreciation.
