No Typewriters / No Talking

No Typewriters / No Talking has two rules, they’re in the title.

Writers of any stage, genre, format, or style are invited to come work together for one hour in a shared space.

You can write with anything: biro on notepad, fingers on laptop, quill on vellum — just not a gosh darn typewriter.

During the hour of writing there is no talking. Coming together for one hour of shared sustained silence is a simple ritual that will help us concentrate on the thing we want to do (but find many reasons not to), write.

Sessions are held across Naarm / Melbourne, Australia. Let us know where you’d like to see No Typewriters / No Talking pop up next.
