  • You! These events are open to all, no genre or skill level or writing style necessary. Come work on your manuscript, dissertation, daily pages, blog post, journal entry, pen pal emails, fanzine, or any other form of scribbling.
  • Free, bring a friend! No RSVP needed (max of ~10 chairs though).


  • Coworking for East Bay writers (and beyond)!
  • Shut Up & Write hosts free in-person and online writing events for writers all over the world. Our goal is to ensure that every writer, regardless of genre or skill level, has access to the community, accountability, and resources they need to be successful in their personal writing goals. Our events use our proven formula: a few minutes of introductions, an hour of focused writing, and a final check-in to share the hour’s progress.
