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.

Shut Up & Write!® Södermalm

Needs a location

Join us for an hour of writing! Note: Medis is an outdoor tapas bar, but if temperatures are too autumnal, we'll be sitting in the chic inside bit.

It can be strikingly helpful to write with other writers; see if that’s true for you! Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem, or just plain work stuff, you’re 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!

18:00 - Quick introductions
18:15 - Timer starts: write for 1 hour
19:15 - The End: chat, take off, or keep writing

OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens afterwards. Writing is a solitary affair; connecting (and sometimes commiserating) with other writers can be rewarding!

BEING LATE IS OKAY: just look for the “Shut Up & Write!” sign, and join the group of silently writing nerds.

Happy writing, and we look forward to seeing you at Medis!

What Shall I Bring?
*Whatever you need to be able to write!
*Headphones/earplugs if you desire a concentration bubble.
