Short Story Write-In

Silent, supported writing time.

To be a short story writer, you need to write. And sometimes, getting your proverbial pen to paper is the hardest part. The short story write-in is the solution! Two hours of silent, supported writing time surrounded by other writers with the same goal.

Dates: Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
Time: 11 am – 1 pm (PT)
Place: Google Meet

What happens at a write-in?

  1. Every Monday morning you will wake up to the Short Story Dispatch containing the Google Meet invite for this week’s write-ins.
  2. On the day of the write-in, we’ll open the room 5 minutes early for awkward small talk.
  3. At 12 noon, I’ll remind you to drink water.
  4. At 12:50-ish pm, we’ll wrap up the session. You can either slip back to your regularly scheduled programming unnoticed or procrastinate for another few minutes with everyone else.

What are the rules?

I can’t very well encourage you to break writing rules and then post rules about your writing time! You have full autonomy during write-ins. Come and go at any time during the session and have your camera on or off. If you join late, I’ll invite you to introduce yourself in the chat: where you’re from, what you like to write, and what you’re working on. The chat is also the place for writing related discussion during the session, and I am available via DM for brief questions.

This sounds perfect for me. How do I join?
