  1. Hey,

    As an “official” WORK contributor, here are my comments to your questions:

    What do you like about WORK Literary Magazine? What would you change? I think that the idea of a magazine devoted to work, when most of us spend most of our waking hours working, is GREAT. I think that it would be wonderful if you could do print as well as online, but as a former poetry editor I do recognize the expenses and challenges of that.

    Would you pay a minimal membership fee, to have access to older issues? Yes. I feel that people who are published by poetry mags should support them.

    Do you want more articles, interviews, prose? Not for my tastes, no, but I would imagine that others might. (If you search on “ON WRITING AND POETRY: HARRY CALHOUN IN CONVERSATION,” you’ll find a widely published interview with me.) I guess that it depends on the audience you want to reach. Beginners might want a “how-to” interview. More experienced writers might want to know how their peers work.

    Are you able to read WORK at work? Working is a weird thing. As I’ve often told my wife, when I’m busy doing anything but working is impossible. But when I’m slow, I can’t really ease up either — I have had many instances where I’ve taken the equivalent of a lunch break to do errands and come back with several instant messages bugging me. So no, I really can’t read poetry at work.

    Would you be interested in a print edition of WORK, or do you prefer the online format? Very definitely think that print carries a certain legitimacy that Internet doesn’t. In fact, when I tried to publicize my online chapbook at bukowski.net, I was told that the site was only for “real” magazines that were in print.

    Over all, great job, happy new year and thanks for putting out the mag!

    Harry
