  4. Shut Up and Write!

    September 19, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

    Join other writers in a supportive and social group for writers of all kinds every Thursday evening. Whether you write for personal, professional or other reasons, come prepared to work. This is not a critique or sharing group, but you are welcome to discuss your work during check-in time between 6:30pm - 7pm Writing is solitary, and this meeting is a chance to connect, and sometimes commiserate with other writers. Come late and leave early if you need to, and bring a charged laptop as outlets are limited. The meeting room varies. Melanie Shook and Korie Pelka of the California Writers Club-SF Peninsula Branch co-host these weekly meetings. Meeting rooms will vary so please email Cynthia McCarthy at for notifications and updates.
