Shut Up and Write!
June 1 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Wednesday, repeating until June 29, 2022

Remember that novel you started writing seven years ago? Is it time to finish it? Maybe you want to write your first screenplay? Pour some poems onto the page? Settle into a daily writing habit?
Join a community of writers and artists who just want to write (part of a larger community you can explore at https://shutupwrite.com). Come any time. No need to share, no need to critique or be critiqued. Just write in the company of other writers.
Here’s how it goes:
Show up when you feel like it.
Write for 90 minutes.
Hang out afterwards (or not – your choice) to share your work or listen to others.
Why Shut Up & Write Works (from shutupwrite.com)
Accountability & Habit Formation
One of the most successful techniques for developing a new habit is to commit to a specific day, time, and location when you will follow through. By making the commitment to show up for your writing at the same time each week, you are able to turn one hour of focused writing into a stable routine that yields remarkable results.
Social Motivation & Support
Studies have shown that even the smallest sense of belonging increases performance on a variety of tasks. When you show up for a Shut Up & Write event, not only are you supported and motivated by everyone else writing around you, you are also a part of a community of writers all over the world.
