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.

Shut Up & Write - March 7th, 2021

Online event

Hello writers,

We invite you to make a commitment to write for an hour, wherever you are, immediately after our check-in via Zoom at 9 a.m. Sunday.

We have had fun group gatherings for our previous online meetings so we'll continue meeting via Zoom until we can meet in person again. If you're brand new to our group, you'll find us a friendly, welcoming bunch of all ages, from many different walks of life. You'll fit right in!

You'll be able to join us by phone, laptop, desktop, tablet, etc. by using the link shown here.

The check-in will take 10-30 minutes, depending on how many people join us and how much we feel like talking. After the check-in, we'll disconnect from Zoom and start an hour of writing.

Please be in a quiet environment when you join the meeting.
