The Silent Writers Collective is an online weekly writing retreat. All writers are invited to join us online or in person to commit a specific amount of time to writing in silence. If you find it difficult to put aside distractions and just write, you may want to get in on this.
Our weekly retreats are held Tuesday 9-10 pm EST (US) and/or 9-10 pm PST (US) for those of us on the left side of the U.S. There is no specific program, we start on time with a minute or two of hellos, etc, then the “buzzer” sounds and we start writing. You can work on your own writing project, or I will offer a writing prompt or exercise to help you get started.
If you can’t make it for the scheduled retreat, Silent Writers are encouraged to “Get Silent” whenever the mood strikes, either alone, with others, online, or in person.
We meet via Twitter using the hashtag #SilentWriters. If you aren’t on Twitter, we have a group on Facebook, or just click the email link to the right, and we’ll get you in on the fun.
We’re not a critique group, we’re not limited by genre, education, experience, or skill. We just get together to write.
