Now accepting submissions: "Being at Work" Poetry

Work in the hustle and bustle of the now is central to the human experience, yet rarely do we sit back and think about how work has come to define our being.

In an attempt to explore this notion we are challenging experienced and beginner poets to submit poetry that captures their work life experiences.

We're looking for poems by people about the work they personally do or have done, paid or unpaid, blue- or white- or no-collar. And for poems about the work of looking for work, and about how our hours at work affect the rest of our lives. In an attempt to reach people from all walks of life we have organized two contests; one contest for experienced poets and another contest for everybody else.

Challenge our unique panel of judges that include Susan Eisenberg, Buzz Hargrove, Maureen Hynes, Ken Neumann and Tom Wayman. For more information on the contest click the following:
