Starting June 10, we will be adding a new meetup for parent-writers at any stage of a writing project. No limits! Can be fiction, nonfiction, memoir, stories, genre novels, anything at all! This isn’t a workshop, but a way to make yourself accountable for your own goals – and get things done!

Our first meetup group on Friday mornings at 10am is going strong (several of our members have already published projects they say they’d never have written if it weren’t for the group!) and we wanted to add another time to see if we could accommodate more of you!

We took a poll on Pen Parentis Behind Closed Doors and most writers said they would attend if we could hold a meetup on weekdays at lunchtime. We listened! Our new meetup will be Mondays at noon at Monte’s Trattoria in the Village. One hour, plus an optional hour to quietly write. Support Monte’s by buying your own lunch or at least a drink on your way upstairs – we will be waiting for you on the second floor!

No child care, but if you have to bring your child, we understand. Each session has a $10 suggested donation, or you can become a Title Member of Pen Parentis and all meetups (and Salons!) are free.

If you’re interested, drop us a line to let us know your availability and how often you think you’d be able to make it.
