12 Kings Not-so-Fortnightly Genre Writing Chat

After nearly 3 years of pandemic hiatus, we’re going back to 12 Kings! Please note that this is an off-schedule trial run, so keep reading for details.

It’s been nearly 3 years since we were last able to meet at 12 Kings, so we’re going to do a trial run to see how the place feels now. Since it was requested that we shift our meetup dates by one week, please also be advised that the meetup on February 28th will be pushed back to March 7th and potentially hosted at 12 Kings as well.

The side room at 12 Kings is no longer licensed, so we’re going to be meeting in the main area. I’m not really sure what this is going to look like for seating, but I’ve been assured by the ownership that we should easily be able to accommodate any number of guests. As usual, someone will arrive early, grab a table, and post details in the Discord #meetups channel.

Other than the change of week and venue, it’s going to be the usual drink and chat. Check out for menus and location details. This event is free for anyone to join.

Location: 12 Kings Pub – 395 Kingsway Vancouver, BC.
This venue doesn’t allow us to maintain a specific table, so the first person to arrive will usually put a table under their name or something like Writers Group. The staff aren’t always great about this, so please visit the Discord chat and follow the meetup conversation there for more details.
Time: The event technically starts at 7 pm but sometimes people get there early. Again, see Discord for more info on any given night. We’ll hang out as long as people stick around. They do sometimes have to kick us out at closing time.
Focus: Please note that this is a social gathering, and we will not be reading or critiquing work.

Note: This is an automatically generated event notice. For full details on any given event, please join the conversation in our Discord server: and look in the #meetups channel.

If it’s your first time and you’re socially awkward (as many writers are, myself included), just find me (@Mark) on Discord I’ll make sure you’re not left hanging in the background! We are a very friendly bunch, and I encourage you to come out and give us a chance if you’re at all hesitant.
