Coworking’s catching on in Birmingham

Birmingham Jelly. Todd Sundsted/FlickrThe coworking movement seems to be picking up steam here in metro Birmingham. It’s a fairly loose and casual way to get together and work. This week you’ve got two chances to venture out to Homewood’s Cool Beans Coffee House (recently purchased by the owners of downtown Birmingham’s Java and Jams) to work with others. Thursday morning you can head over and work with Coworking Birmingham starting at 9 a.m.; on Friday, you can head on over there and work all day with “members” of Birmingham Jelly starting at 10. While the first group meets occasionally, the Birmingham Jelly meets weekly. Both groups maintain presence on Facebook, so you can always start to follow them to know what’s next.

Come Out and Play Game Shows, Java and Jams

Come on down! Downtown that is to the 2nd Game Show Night Thursday at Java & Jams. It’s exactly how it sounds — an evening of playing live versions of old-school game shows where everyone’s a contestant. Java & Jams is located at 321 20th St. North. Get more information and a description of the games at the Come Out and Play Game Shows website.

Cost: Free, with somewhat valuable prizes. If you don’t go, you’ll never know who you might meet . . . and beat!

The Terminal Staff Meeting, Java and Jams

So, you want to join this motley crew of writers? Cool, because we’re going to need a lot more folks like you in the coming year to keep this thing going…

We’re looking for anyone that has a true passion and love for Birmingham, Alabama, its metropolitan area and all that it has to offer. Our submissions section (recently edited – check for the changes) offers a little more information about what we’re looking for in each section – and know that we’re not just looking for writers either. Photographers, video folks, people that like to podcast – all are welcome.

We still can’t pay you yet, and we’re not going to be too picky, though if you could forward us a sample of your writing that would even be better.

So come on out to Java and Jams (321 20th Street North) buy some coffee and let’s start a conversation in this city.
