I host a monthly Shut Up & Write (or Edit) group on Brisbane’s northside (in Newmarket).

We meet on the fourth Saturday of each month for an afternoon of quiet writing.

Any type of writing is relevant for this group: you can work on your thesis, marketing copy, novel, poetry, business plan, or whatever writing project is occupying your mind right now. We operate with pomodoro rules – 25 minutes of quiet writing or editing, followed by a 10-minute networking break. You can use the networking time to meet other writers and seek answers to your writing problems.

Entry is by donation ($5 recommended), to cover venue costs.

The group is organised through Meetup.

At Shut Up & Write we practise social solitude. We write quietly and independently, all working on our own projects.
