What we're about

Work Better is a Meetup Group in Prague for English-speaking location-independent professionals--remote workers, freelancers, digital nomads, entrepreneurs, writers, creatives, and scholars--who want to work more effectively, successfully, and happily.

If you're looking for ways to work more efficiently; to collaborate with, support, and get support from others; to clarify and better achieve your goals; or to reignite your passion about work, then this group is for you.

----------

Events include:

Workshops, Trainings, & Lectures: When the opportunities arise, the group will host workshops, trainings, or lectures focused on improving the quality of one's work or work-life balance. If you have a great talk on this topic that you'd like to give, please let us know!

Mastermind Groups (https://www.google.cz/search?q=mastermind+groups): Recurring meetings with the same participants in a small group over an extended period to share knowledge, clarify goals, and hold each other accountable.

Jelly! (http://workatjelly.com) Jelly is a "work meetup" for people who can and often do work from anywhere with a desk and an internet connection but who would rather do it alongside others doing the same.

The "Group Work Meetups": This is a twice-a-week meetup for Locus Workspace Members and a monthly meetup open to the public. It's an intensely focused four hours of work in a group setting, using a group pomodoro technique (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique) for those who want it.

The "Critique-Free Writing Meetup": A weekly meetup for writers of any kind (scholarly, journalism, non-fiction, fiction, etc.) who could benefit from a sacred time and a shared/social context to just write, write, write each week.

The Prague Writers Group (http://www.praguewritersgroup.com/): A bi-weekly meetup for creative writers to read and critique one another's work.

Your idea goes here! We're open to other ideas and often adding various events that might help all of us work better, so let us know if you have a good idea that you'd be willing to help organize!

• Locus: FUN STUFF in Prague (http://www.meetup.com/fun-stuff-prague/) organizes meetups for location-independent professionals----remote workers, freelancers, digital nomads, entrepreneurs, writers, creatives, and scholars--who want to get to know other like-minded people and have some fun in the process.

Locus also organizes meetups only open to members of the coworking space:

Critique-Free Writing Group

Locus Workspace

This group is for anyone who writes- for any reason. Have a thesis or article you need to write? Trying to finish a novel or an academic paper? This group is for you. If you've only tried working at home, alone, using nothing but will-power to motivate yourself to get it done, I think you'll be surprised at the power of merely sitting in a room with a bunch of other people, all working away on their own projects, to get you going and help you finish. We meet starting at 9:00, introduce ourselves and say a few words about what we're working on and what we hope to accomplish. At the end of the session you can give us a brief recap of how it went. We'll break at noon and those who wish to can join us for a group lunch (where and what to eat is decided on by members). The afternoon session starts at 2:00 pm. You're welcome to come to either session or both. Please come as close to 9:00 as you can if you come for the morning session. If you come to the afternoon session we are usually back by about a quarter to 2:00.

Prague Writers Group

Locus Workspace

The Prague Writers Group ( www.praguewritersgroup.com ) meets at Locus Workspace. Many thanks to Will Bennis for hosting us! Feel free to bring things to eat. Everyone's welcome. It's free of charge, and you can come later if you can't make it from the beginning. You're welcome to submit anything you want feedback on (no need to write anything new for this!), including book chapters and short stories in any genre, although recently we've been focusing more on novels and longer works. Word limit for submissions is 5,000 words. Send your submissions by the Thursday before the meeting (at the very latest Friday afternoon). Also, if you don't have time to read through everyone's submissions, still come to the meeting! We know that busy schedules don't always make finding reading time easy. To submit, use the Dropbox folder. If you don't have access to it, send [masked] your e-mail address so I can add you. Looking forward to seeing everyone there! My number in case of any confusion the day of the meeting is[masked] - or on Facebook: Sonya Lano (https://www.facebook.com/sonya.lano) DROPBOX INFO: - add new stuff for the next meeting & stuff from previous meetings with new revisions marked to the " submissions" folder for the meeting date. Put your name at the beginning of the file name (for example: "Sonya Somewhere in the Dark") - When providing written feedback (not required, but welcome), save the file as a separate document in the "Feedback" folder under the folder for the meeting date and then under the person the feedback is for (e.g. "For Sonya"). Then mark your changes/ feedback. - The submissions folder will be deleted a day after the meeting has taken place! Feedback will be deleted about a month after the meeting, so if you need it longer than that, make sure to copy it to your own disk.

Jelly! FREE open day of coworking

Locus Workspace

Jelly (http://www.workatjelly.com/) is a FREE meetup for freelancers, digital nomads, remote workers & other location-independent professionals who normally work from home or cafés, and who miss working alongside other people more often. Every month, Locus Workspace (http://www.locusworkspace.com/) offers its space for free to location-independent professionals to work alongside one another for the day (there are absolutely no strings attached and you don't need to be interested in a membership in a coworking space to attend). Often there are other events during the Jelly that participants are welcome to join: a group lunch at a nearby restaurant, a creative problem solving workshop (Lego Serious Play), or something else. Have a good day of productive work, meet other freelancers, digital nomads, and solo-preneurs in Prague, and get to know the benefits of coworking.
