JoClub is an international group made up of people who love or are interested in journaling, community, and self development.
New prompts crafted by JoClub are released everyday on Instagram for both members and non-members that help people from all around the world to document their thoughts and experiences through journaling.
Members are given special access to extra content, including daily emails with food for thought and song recommendations.
Alongside getting daily emails that are sent directly to your inbox, members are able to join and participate in journaling meetings that are hosted by the founder of the club, Jo Franco.
The fun just doesn’t stop! Every Friday, the Creative Study Hall is in session. This a time for members to chat while working on projects they’ve been meaning to do.
Every member will get access to the Discord group and Facebook page where they can stay connected with one another. You are free to ask questions, send quotes, pictures, book recommendations, prompt ideas, and whatever else is on your mind. The sense of community that comes along with being a JoClub member is one of the best parts about signing up- lifelong friendships are a bonus!
JoClub is for anybody who not only enjoys journaling, but also values the diversity that comes along with getting to know people from around the world.
Members typically have at least an intermediate level of English.
Members receive an email in their inbox every day with a new prompt, a song recommendation, and food for thought.
JoClub meetings are one and a half hours long, and they are normally held twice a month on Sunday mornings (EST). Once you join, you will receive an email containing the specific time and date of the next upcoming meeting.
The Creative Study Hall, also known as ‘Things I’d Rather Be Doing’, starts every Friday afternoon (EST) and lasts around two hours, depending on the kind of projects the members want to work on. Members are more than welcome to hop on or off the video call as they please.
The Discord group is the perfect place to stay in touch all throughout the week. Members can send messages in any of the channels whenever they get the itch to chat with others!
With a device and an internet connection, you can meet up virtually with other members from the comfort of your own home.
If you’re on the go, you can join too! You can keep your camera off if that is more convenient for you
The meetings take place on Zoom, a video calling platform that does not require any downloading. You simply press the link, type in your name, and join the meeting at the scheduled time.
Motivation: With daily, introspective prompts, you will never have to think twice about what to write in your journal. JoClub prompts are the equivalent of adding a shot of espresso in your drink- a burst of motivation to keep going on with your day.
Unique: JoClub is your one-stop shop for introspection and journaling! There’s no other group like it.
Community: Making friends has never been easier! JoClub members all have at least one thing in common- an interest in documenting their thoughts and experience through journaling. Even if you are introverted (Many of the members consider themselves to be as well!), you can comfortably socialize.
Diverse: JoClub is a global group with members who have had varying upbringings and life experiences. Regardless of factors like age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and anything else that makes us all incredibly unique, we come together to support one another.
