What’s the number one way to kill a writing contest? Insufficient entries. WORK regretfully rescinds it’s writing contest for 2012. While we wish the contest could have continued, and were content to pay out-of-pocket for the prizes, with too few of entries we can’t consider this a fair contest.

Issue 3.39

This week, Rachel Voss emerges covered in poetry.


Fiction submissions due June 1st. Memoir and Interview submissions due today, 5/28. There is no time like the present. This will mark the end of our Writing Contest.

Issue 3.38

Charles Deemer sh-booms the do wop a be bop with a rewind job redefining “work”.


What? Not a single interview submitted to the contest? It will be a heated battle between Memoir, Fiction and Essay unless you submit an interview this week.

If you have an interview to submit, go ahead and send it over. If not, here are some suggestions: interview your boss or someone with multiple jobs or your grandmother – everybody has a story about work.

Submissions due: May 28 for memoir and interview.

Submissions due: June 1 for fiction.
