What we're about

For more virtual events, join our Online Events Meetup here: https://www.meetup.com/shutupandwriteonlineevents/

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.

Show Up and Just Write! [Weekday Ed. Aug 05th, Thu]

Online event

In an attempt to get myself into a regular writing habit, I have decided to organise writing sessions so I'll show up to write. Join me if you're looking for some company to write with, or want to make use of this opportunity to establish a writing habit. I hope to host writing sessions on a daily basis eventually!

This event is for all levels, regardless of whether you're a pro or just starting to write, and all kinds of writing, be it fiction, essay, thesis, poem, screenplay, report, journal, or anything else. There is no critique involved in our sessions, your writing stays safe with you.

A brief outline of the event:
1. Brief introduction (approx. 10 minutes);
2. Write for an hour with a set timer;
3. Socialising (optional)

I'm keeping to the meeting format of "Shut Up & Write", although I hope to extend the writing interval beyond one hour in the future.


This is an online event, the Zoom link is visible to those who sign up.

I'm still experimenting with the event time to determine which is the most ideal for us. The timing for the events may change in the future. I welcome feedback on your preferred time slots!
