Jupiter-April 29, 2009 – We’ve held meetings for laid off journalists in Broward and Miami-Dade. Now it’s Palm Beach’s turn.

This upcoming Wednesday, May 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the first Wednesday of every month the South Florida Society of Professional Journalists offers laid off journalists a free place to work and search for jobs along with free coffee at Cooks in the Abacoa community in Jupiter.

Patty Doherty, whose husband is a culinary-institute trained chef, recently opened Cooks. We’re welcome to come and work on stories, set up interviews/meetings, or just talk, and squat in the place until the dinner prep starts. If we get hungry, they’ve promised to whip up something that unemployed writers could afford.

In addition to free coffee Patty offers free Wi-Fi to SPJ / Journalists in Transition members. From Patty: “You never know, maybe they’d like to learn to cook? Or bartend? Or any number of different tasks a restaurant must perform…”
