  • Join us for an hour of writing! Weve discovered that its strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if its true for you at 11am on Sunday mornings.

    Be it a book, blog, script, essay, dissertation, resume, melody, poem or just plain work stuff, you are 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.

    SCHEDULE:
    11:00am - SESSION 1: quick intros.
    11:15am- timer starts: write for 1 hour.
    12:15pm - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Main Street Bagel closes at 5pm.
    OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 12:15pm. Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing.
    BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (Ill be the person with the Shut Up & Write! sign.) If you were on time, please be willing to make room for the friendly latecomer.
    Happy writing and I look forward to seeing you at Main Street Bagel!
