Struggling to stay creative? Looking for company while you work on your writing?
At our write-togethers, we meet for a few hours and work on our writing, reading, or editing, keeping each other accountable and cheering each other on in companionable semi-silence.
We use a variant of the Pomodoro technique, where we work in concentration for about 30 minutes, and take a short chat break before diving in again. We use the Voice Chat feature of the Write Together category on our Discord server - you can find info and instructions on how to join on this page.
Sometimes we end up not feeling very chatty and simply keep on writing - but the company is still felt and appreciated.
The current Write Together schedule is as follows:
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5pm-7pm BST
Saturdays, 4.30pm-6.30pm BST
* with the occasional Tuesday or Thursday meeting skipped in favour of critique sessions. Please check Meet Up for details.
That being said, the server is always online and the channels always available for impromptu sessions. Feel free to arrange your own write togethers if there isn't one listed on MeetUp, or if the times don't suit you.
NB: These meetings do not count towards the pre-requisite of attending two critique sessions before submitting your own work for critique. Please see the Critique Meetings page for more details.
