Just Write

Just Write is a six-week class, where writers come together to…just write. It’s open to writers of all levels.

Do you find it hard to get yourself in a chair to write for a good stretch of time? If so, you’re not alone. Oh, no.

That’s the beauty of Just Write. You gather with a group of writers once a week for three hours and you…just write. You work on a project of your choosing, which can be any type of writing—novel, script, memoir, stand-up routine, etc.

A teacher is present, offering brief features: words of wisdom, discussion, intentions for the coming week. You can participate or just keep writing.

Whether you’re charging through a rough draft or refining your work, you’ll find this a valuable time to get something done.

About Just Write

It’s an opportunity to add discipline to your writing if you find it hard to carve out time for it on your own; to work among fellow writers, making a solitary task into a social one; and to benefit from the presence a supportive instructor who is a writer and a fountain of information.

There’s no syllabus as this is mostly just a place where writers come together to just write. But the sessions are framed with inspirational thoughts from the teacher, free-flowing discussion, and thinking of intentions for the coming week.
