Tuesday at Julie's @ Julies Cafe | Alameda | California | United States

Join us Tuesday mornings at Julie’s Coffee & Tea Garden, a local Alameda café with great food, an inviting atmosphere and some of the friendliest and most intriguing staff on the island.

The patio is the ideal spot for a bunch of rowdy writers to hang out and talk about things like writing, not writing, what to do about writing, where we want to take our writing and how to deal with those weird non-writers in our lives. We’ve yet to meet a writing-related topic we’re afraid to discuss.

We welcome new faces and new voices.

When the weather turns and the outdoor heaters can no longer compete, you’ll find us inside at one of the big tables (or several of the small ones dragged together). Unlike the write-ins, discussion groups like the ones on Tuesdays at Julie’s are all about eating, talking, connecting, building relationships and enjoying our robust community of writers.
