Locus Events are Going Virtual!

Online events at Locus Workspace are stronger than ever! One of our top priorities is to keep events alive to maintain our well-known sense of community among our coworking members and add value to their memberships. Locus’ goal is to help freelancers, digital nomads, remote workers and other location-independent professionals be more productive and work better. Despite these challenging times, we wanted to make sure to keep up that spirit, and that’s why we’ve gone virtual!

Virtual

“Focus @ Locus” Group Pomodoro Work Meetup 

Are you more focused and productive when you work alongside friends or colleagues? Then join our daily “Focus @ Locus” virtual meetup and work alongside a small group of other Locus Workspace members while we practice the Pomodoro technique.

How does it work?

At the beginning of each meeting we’ll share our goals for the work session (2-hour session on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and 3.5-hour session on Wednesdays). We will work as a group for 25 minutes at a time with a 5 minute break, or 55 minutes with a 5 minute break if you want take every other break, and repeat! At the end of the session, we’ll evaluate whether our goals have been reached.

The Pomodoro technique has helped millions of people to improve their time management, making them more productive and focused. So why not you?

Czech Conversation Classes 

Would you like to improve your conversational Czech? Then consider joining our online Czech conversation classes along with other international Locus members.

How does it work?

For one hour you will have the chance to practice your speaking skills with a native teacher in a small group with other Locus members. Subjects change every week and are sometimes based on the latest news to keep the content as varied as possible while helping you retain new vocabulary on different topics.

👨‍👧‍👧 Members

📆 Every Friday

🕒 From 2:00 to 3:00 pm

💻 Meeting via Zoom

💰 Try out one class for free. After that, commitment is month by month (participants let everyone know by the start of each calendar month using a shared Google sheet if they’ll miss any – or all – classes for the upcoming month). The hourly rate is 600 Kc + VAT, which is shared among members based on their relative number of committed hours each month. For example, if there is an average of 4 students per class, it would cost you 150 Kc / 60-minute lesson.

How to join? Ask a community manager or send an email to cesky@locusworkspace.com

 

Critique-Free Writing Meetup

Can’t you make yourself sit for a couple of hours to write down a few pages? Do you get distracted easily? Are you facing deadlines and need to work over the weekend as well?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Critique-Free Writing Meetup may be just a thing for you. Set up your calendar to “busy” for next Saturday and join this writing meetup. It is meant for everyone who needs to do any kind of a writing activity, e.g. write an article for the newspaper, a blog post, a thesis, an academic paper or even a novel.

At the beginning of the session, the participants introduce themselves briefly, mention what they are currently working on and set goals they want to reach on that day. At the end of session, everybody tries to sum up whether they succeeded in accomplishing the set goals.

Even if the session is running virtually right now, you can feel the sense of community – a group of people working on a similar goal. It motivates you to get things done the sooner the better and help you keep the perseverance in writing.

Prague Writers Group

At a certain stage of the writing process, every author needs some feedback on their work. That is exactly what you can get by joining Prague Writers Group! This group is tailed for writers who are in-process of writing a longer work or novel of any genre. You can submit any piece of work you need a feedback on.

The submission should not exceed 3500 words though and should be done by Thursday evening. It allows other members of the group to have enough time (till Saturday evening) to read it through and give you an objective feedback. Even though you may not always have time to read everyone’s texts through, join anyway!

👨‍👧‍👧 Members & Non-Members

📆 Every Saturday

🕒 From 5:30 to 9:00 pm

💻 Meeting via Skype

How to join? Register via Meetup HERE (look for the next “Prague Writers Group” meetup) or contact Sonya Lano on Facebook or Messenger to add you to the Skype group and give you access to the Dropbox folder.
