Shut Up & Write!™ Quezon City
Thu, Jun 20, 2019 at 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Snacks & Ladders - Lungsod Quezon
Join us for two hours of writing! We’ve discovered that it’s strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if it’s true for you at 7PM on Thursday evenings! 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: 7:00 - quick intros. 7:15 - session 1 - timer starts: write for 1 hour. 8:15 - End of session 1 8:15-8:20 - break 8:20-9:00 - session 2 - timer starts: write for 40 minutes. 9:00 - (the end) chat / take off / keep writing. Snacks and Ladders closes at midnight, so no pressure there. OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 9:00PM. Writing is very solitary. Connecting (and sometimes even commiserating) with other writers is a cool thing. There are board games and a foosball available at the cafe for those who wish to stick around after the session. BEING LATE IS OKAY: just show up and get settled, then check-in with me after the session. (I’ll 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 Snacks and Ladders! What Should I Bring? Whatever you need to be able to write! Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block the cafe’s overhead music or the occasional conversation by other patrons. There aren't many plug sockets available for PC chargers, so please be aware of this before you come. Other Important Details: Snacks and Ladders does not have WiFi. TRAVEL / PARKING: a couple of parking spaces but no bike racks available. However the cafe has an outdoor terrace where bikes may be stored if need be. GUIDELINES: Tea/coffee from Php50-120. Beers Php60. Student meals available (ID required). Please thank our hosts by purchasing something (cash only, no credit cards accepted).
