Shut Up & Write (or Edit)

First Friday of each month, 6.00 – 8.00pm (20 spaces only)

Third Saturday of each month, 1.00 -3.00pm (10 spaces only)

Get together with writers and editors to work on your writing project. 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.

We work in the quiet-ish cafe environment of The Letter Lounge, with plenty of coffee and food available for purchase.

If you’ve never tried a Shut Up And Write (or Edit) session before, come along and see whether the structure is right for you.

The session is free, but you do need to register – via MeetUp at Registration is absolutely essential, as there’s often a waiting list.

This meetup is hosted by Brisbane-based writer/editor Judy Gregory. Judy is available for individual consultation and manuscript review and editing (this is a fee-based service, operated separately from Shut Up & Write). For more information about manuscript appraisal and writing support, contact Judy by email at or by phone on 0431 909 684.

The clock will start at the advertised time, so arrive early.
