Welcome

 

to the page for Jellies being held at The Monks Yard, Horton Cross, near Ilminster, Somerset.

(Thanks to @CoWorkingWest & @judyheminsley for the links and much of the text on this page)

 

 

What's a Jelly?

 

  • Do you work from home, or trudging from coffeeshop to coffeeshop in search of wifi and power ?
  • Wish that "working for yourself" didn't always have to mean "working by yourself" ?
  • Getting "cabin fever" and desperate for a change of scene, some inspiration and motivation ?

 

Sound familiar ?  Then our programme of regular "Jelly" coworking gatherings near Ilminster are what you need !

 

"Errr ... what's a 'Jelly’?"  - see here and here

"… and what's coworking?" - see here and here

You can find out about upcoming Jellies near Ilminster by:

 

  • Checking back on this page for updates.
  • Following our Tweets at @emmersons where we always announce new dates, at least 1 week before they happen.
  • Visiting our Eventbrite Page where you can follow the links to book your place at one of our Jellies, get directions, see who else is coming etc.

 

 

Who comes to Jelly then ?

 

All sorts of people - and not just techie-types (although they are welcome too) ! 

Anyone who can bring some kind of work to do is welcome - whether it is computer based, paper based or craftbased.

 

 

 

So, is it any good ?

 

 

Well we think it's great, but we're probably biased or brainwashed.

You can check out what some other people have said about our Jellies and what they have got out of them via the links on the Bath/Bristol and Frome wiki pages

 

 

But I'm nowhere near you, darn ...

 

Hey don't worry - Jelly wasn't our idea (but gosh we wish that it was !).

Jelly is community thing, and anyone can get involved - if there isn't one near you then you could always start your own!

The best place to start is here.

Judy Heminsley of workfromhomewisdom.com interviewed CoWorkingWest about coworking and Jelly in January 2010 - see her article here

If you are thinking of starting your OWN Jelly then you can also check out her excellent "everything you need to know" guide here

 

 

Who's doing all this anyway ?

 

There are now a number of people running these across the country.  They are started by fellow homeworkers, freelancers and digital nomads who sometimes miss the interaction of an office and want to have the opportunity to chat with others, exchange ideas and work in a refreshingly different environment.  Why don't you become the next new kid on the block?
