Our weekly Writer-Parent Accountability Meetups are now entirely virtual! Choose the weekly time that works best for you and contact us to ask for the proper Zoom link. All times are Eastern, but participants welcome from anywhere!

All participants MUST be writers who are parents (of any age kid) and all participants must commit to a writing project (beginning stages is fine, any genre including novels, plays, musicals, poetry, collections, stories, memoir, Thesis, children’s books, journalism). This is not a workshop: this is a proven method to finish whatever writing project you are currently pursuing.

All meetups last one hour.
