Occasionally, the MUGsters get together for a weekend dedicated to writing. Since our meetings are online through Google Hangouts, it’s also a chance for us in MUG to meet face to face and socialize. Over the course of two days and an opening evening, we intersperse dedicated writing sessions with writing exercises, meals, social events, and the occasional game.
