Workers Write! and Overtime


"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. 

In 2006, we received a workplace story that didn't fit in our WW! series, but we wanted to publish it. So, we created Overtime, a series of one-story chapbooks that showcase workplace stories.

Nine years later, Workers Write! and Overtime have become important voices in working class literature. We are collecting the stories and poems about jobs that define who we are as individuals and communities."
