What we're about

We’re looking for hosts to start more in-person events! Go to https://shutupwrite.com/organizers to sign up.

For online events, check out our Online Events Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/shutupandwriteonlineevents.

Shut Up & Write hosts free in-person and online writing events for writers all over the world. Our goal is to ensure that every writer, regardless of genre or skill level, has access to the community, accountability, and resources they need to be successful in their personal writing goals. Our events use our proven formula: a few minutes of introductions, an hour of focused writing, and a final check-in to share the hour's progress.

What to Expect

RSVP and please arrive 10–15 minutes early to get settled at an in-person event. Our host will lead introductions and then everyone will write for a quiet, focused period of time.

Afterward, feel free to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. Our events are a safe space for writers to work on their craft. No one will read or critique your writing.

For more information, visit https://shutupwrite.com, or email us at questions@shutupwrite.com. To learn more about our events, check out our Getting Started Guide at https://shutupwrite.com/getting-started-guide.

We will use Zoom to connect while writing from home. If you haven't used it before, please download and test Zoom on your computer before we meet.

FYI, we now have the option of meeting in person if you're in the Mt Shasta area. We can meet at the LOGE hotel at 7:00 pm if we would like to get together live.
Remember the simple format:

  • Quick Check-in - Who are you? What are you working on? (Keep it to 30 seconds or less)
  • Write! --- Remember what the event is called? Yep ... do that!
  • Quick Checkout - How'd it go for you?
  • Optional Socializing - If you want to hang out and talk about writing, life, whatever ... after the event is

6:55'ish - The event starts promptly at 7 pm, so please respect everybody's time by being ready.

7 pm - Quick Check-ins. A very brief check-in (aim for 30 seconds). Who are you? And what are you working on? And please be respectful of being brief. There will be plenty of time to socialize and talk about your writing after the event!

7:10 - 8:50'ish - WRITE!

8:50 pm - 9 pm - Checkout. How'd your writing go? Again, be brief.

> 9 pm - Those that want to have further discussions are welcome to stay.

Remember - this is called "Shut Up & WRITE". I hope that makes it clear about how we'll spend our time. :-) Cheers!
