Join us for an hour of writing! We’ve discovered that it can be helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you on Tuesdays at 2!

Whether it's a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are 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.

2:00 - Get settled and do quick intros (optional).
2:15 - Timer starts: write for 1 hour (quiet time at our table).
3:15 - We did it! Feel free to chat (with people who also want to chat), take off, or keep writing. Exo closes at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays.

ABOUT THE SOCIAL BIT: Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers can be really helpful. That said, if you want to keep to yourself, pop your headphones in and skip the round-table, that's totally cool.

BEING LATE IS OKAY! Just show up and get settled, and then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll be the person with the Shut Up & Write! sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer.

Whatever you need to be able to write! If you're bringing a laptop, make sure it's charged.
Bring headphones if you want to block noise from other patrons who aren't there to shut up and write!

Exo has WiFi, street parking, and plenty of seating.
PLEASE RSVP so we can reserve enough space! If your plans change and you need to cancel, just be sure you mark yourself as not attending.
We'll have a table reserved in the back room/bar. Look for the Shut Up & Write! sign on the table.
Outside food and drink is not allowed. Exo has delicious coffee, drinks and snacks. Please thank them by purchasing something!

Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at Exo on Tuesday!
