    The Coffee Club Café - Park Road, Shop 9 - 11/32 Park Rd, Milton QLD 4064, Australia

    Our monthly central catch-up!

    For in-person meetup, come along to the Coffee Club at Milton (CCM). There's free parking available in the area and it's just up the road from the Milton train station. 

    To find us inside, head down to the back of the restaurant and look for the forest of laptops. We'll have plenty of room for everyone, power available if you need to plug in, and lots of chance to chat and focus on writing! Bring headphones if you wish, to aid focus or simply get some quiet time. Whatever works for you is fine with us.

    We'll be running some writing sprints through the day. 

    If you can't make it in person, join in online on our Discord server!
