Workers Write! 65

A project of Blue Cubicle Press (see other related projects)

About

In 2005, we published what we thought would be a one-time anthology, Tales from the Cubicle, a collection of stories from the office worker's point of view. The book was so well received, we decided to make it an annual event, highlighting stories and poems from a particular workplace. Since our first anthology, Workers Write! has become an important voice in working-class literature. We are collecting the stories and poems about jobs that define who we are as individuals and communities.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
