Shut Up and Write, Saturday October 8, 2016 (Central Toronto) (The group meets every Saturday at 2pm)
Originating in San Francisco, Shut Up and Write meet ups place the typically solitary activity of writing into a more social space. Here, everyone writes and there are no audiences. We’re all practicing peers, regardless of our credentials, our chosen genres and whether we self-identify as writers.
THE DRILL: We gather in a café with our laptops and/or notebooks and pens. We each have something we need to write, whether that be a blog post, a funding proposal, an essay, part of a novel or a script or a thesis, etc. We write for 25 mins at a time, with social breaks in between.
THE TIME: 2 pm to 5 pm. Arrive and leave whenever you like.
THE VENUE: We’ll be meeting at The Croissant Tree, 625 Church Street. This venue is wheelchair accessible, with wifi. There are some power outlets (if you’re using a laptop, it’s still best to charge it beforehand).
This session is hosted by Akin Collective member Tom Cho.
Hope to see you at an event some time!
