What’s Your Work Story? Write for Our Times

Our Times magazine is always looking for workers’ stories about their working lives.

Consider writing your work story for Our Times Magazine’s Working for a Living series.

You can do it! Our Times wants stories that describe:

  • What your work is like
  • What you do for a living
  • How you feel about your work
  • The best part about your work
  • And the worst part

Paint a picture – write about what you see and do while working.

If you're not at a paid job now, write about what your job was like, before you quit, retired, got laid off or fired.

Articles should be 2,000 words or less.

For stories accepted for publication, Our Times will pay the writer $100.

There’s no deadline to this writing assignment – it’s an open-ended call for stories.

Our Times is a magazine that’s published four times a year. It’s about work, workers’ rights and social justice. Subscribe for just $25.
