Welcome to the Silent Writers Collective

Time to be quiet and write


If you find it difficult to put distractions aside and just write, you might want to join us.

Our mission, quite simply, is to write.

My name is Olivia and I started this group in 2008 when I realized that I wasn’t writing as much as I wanted.  Between work, home, family, and all the other distractions of life, writing had dwindled to grocery lists and work memos.

I talked to other writers I knew who faced the same challenge, and we committed to meeting for at least one hour each week to write in silence.  One hour may not sound like much, but it’s a start.  We found our successes building on themselves, and once again, writing became a priority.

When I moved from Baltimore to Phoenix, our group did not want to end, so now we meet online. Our gatherings start with a few minutes of socializing, sharing info, etc, but after that we agree to shut up and write.

I decided to open the Silent Writers Collective up to anyone who is serious about finding the time to write. We’re in the early stages of organizing, but we welcome you to join us.

Feel free to email me for more info or sign up for the RSS feed to get details on our next Write-In.

Thank you for visiting the Silent Writers. We hope you’ll join us.

  1. Olivia, this is a wonderful idea. I get so distracted by all the social media that it can be very hard to find time to write. The Silent Writers Collective will accomplish both.
    Thank you

    1. Cynthia, I have the same issue! Not only social media, but making dinner, doing laundry, watching TV. I find it so easy to let everything else distract me. Committing to an hour a week with others (that’s the important part) helps get me going. So happy you’ll be participating.
