NOTE CHANGE OF DAYS!! MOVING TO MONDAY NIGHTS. Start your week with an hour or two of writing at LOVETT LIBRARY! Weve discovered that its strikingly helpful to write with other writers. See if its true for you at 6:45 PM on Mondays. 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.

6:45 - SESSION 1: quick intros.

7:00 - timer starts: write for 50 minutes.

7:55 - (break) chat / take off / keep writing. 8:15 - timer starts: write for 45 minutes.

8:45 Take off (Library closes at 9:00).

SEATING: Lots of small tables. One larger table for four. The library has WiFi - sign in either at the front desk or through your library card. There are some outlets, but it is advisable to come with laptops pre-charged just in case all of those tables are taken. Bring earbuds/earplugs if you want to block out conversations by other patrons. ACCESSIBILITY: The library is wheelchair accessible. TRAVEL / PARKING: There is on-street parking. The library is a short walk from the Allen Lane Regional Rail station if you are arriving by public transit. OPTIONAL SOCIALIZING happens at 6:15. 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 Lovett Library!

How to find us:I'll have a sign on the table!
