Shut Up & Write!™

November 19, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:15 pm on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely

Join us for an hour of writing! I’ve found that it can be amazingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 7:15pm on Tuesday evenings at the Wolverine Farm Letterpress and Publick House.

Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, 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.

• 7:15pm – Everyone starts to arrive and get settled.
• 7:25pm-ish – Quick intros.
• 7:30pm – Timer starts and the writing hour begins.
• 8:30pm – The end of the hour is announced, but if you don’t want to socialize or head out, you can always keep writing. Wolverine Farm closes at 9pm.

Optional socializing happens from 8:30 to 8:50pm. Writing is very solitary, so connecting (and commiserating) with other writers can be a great thing.

Being late is okay—just show up and get settled, then check in with me after the session. If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer.

***TUESDAYS are also Open Craft Night at Wolverine Farm, which goes until 7pm. If you show up early, the main table will be occupied, and we need to be friendly to the crafters and give them time to clear out at a relaxed pace. I recommend arriving at 7:15; writing doesn’t start until 7:30.***

• Outlets are limited, so make sure your laptop or other device is fully charged before you arrive.
• Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block out the overhead music or the conversation by other patrons. Although WFP is generally fairly quiet, when an event upstairs lets out it can get loud, so come prepared just in case!
• WiFi is free and available within the building or outside on the patio.
• There is a wide variety of non-alcoholic and alcoholic (beer, wine, prosecco) beverages available, and limited snacks. **Please thank our hosts by purchasing something, and don’t bring your own food or drink other than a water bottle.**
• We will be downstairs if there’s space available. Otherwise, check the upstairs event room if you can’t find us.
• Parking at the venue is very limited—come early, and in the warmer months, ride your bike if you can.

Happy writing, and I look forward to seeing you!
