Shut Up & Write!™ Vacaville Monday Evening
Note that the weekly meetup has moved back to Mondays from Wednesdays (because your host's schedule is obnoxious and keeps changing). The schedule will be as follows: • 6:00-6:15pm: I will find a table in the library. You should be able to identify me by my Macbook and the Shut Up & Write coffee mug I'll set out. Most tables only accommodate 4 people so we may need to split up if the group is a little larger. Just walk straight back from the entrance and into the section called the quiet area. If it's particularly busy, I may be all the way back and at the tables to the right. Otherwise, I'll make an effort to be visible if at all possible. If you can charge your laptop before arriving, that'd be ideal, since not all tables have outlets close enough to plug in (although many do and I will choose a table with outlets if one is available). Latecomers are welcome. Feel free to say a quick/quiet hi even if we've already started writing. • 6:15-7:15pm: Shut up and write for an hour (or longer, if you're on a roll -- the library closes at 9, so we've got time if people want to keep writing). N.B. For the unfamiliar, there are two public libraries in Vacaville, so please double check the address. The Cultural Center is the larger one, with ample parking and seating options inside.

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.Want to know more? Check us out: Or get in touch:

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.
