We know how hard it can be to make time to write, so we wanted to provide a small solution for our membership by introducing a new program, Penned Up! Our objectives for this program are to provide a two-hour period and space for folks to drop in and write. We also want these Penned Up! sessions to be opportunities for members to build community, gather together in a shared space, meet writing goals, commit to writing, and protect creative time by coming to write. We will be alternating between in-person drop-ins and virtual Zoom drop-ins on a monthly schedule between September and May.


You can come and go as you need to. No pressure.


For Penned Up! Zoom sessions, we will set up registration via Zoom, where we will email the link and folks can drop in and out as they’d like. After the first 45 minutes of undisturbed writing time, the SWG will offer participants the option to go into a breakout room to have a break and talk to other participants. This break is not mandatory! If you’re in a groove, keep going! You’re also welcome to take breaks as you need them at any point during the two hours.




SWG will set up the Zoom room and registration will be available up until and during the event so folks can drop in as they please.

7:00 PM: Penned Up Drop-in Begins/Writing time starts

7:45 PM: Optional break to chat with SWG and other writers in a breakout room (not mandatory)

8:15 PM: Writing Time

9:00 PM: Debrief

9:15 PM: Event Ends


When writers come into the Zoom room, they will be asked to put their goals for the session in the chat. At the end of the event, we will ask if goals were reached.
