Pros

Writing is creative work, original, one's own to do.

Cons

Writing does not pay well for most of us, especially poets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Publish our work, pay us for publishing our work, and pay us a living wage.

    I worked at Poets & Writers full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Creative, interesting people and opportunities to connect with others in the literary world. Schedules run like clockwork, so no last minute craziness or working overtime.

    Cons

    Kind of old school and bureaucratic; not a lot of opportunities to grow. Work can be boring. Pay isn't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how flexible schedules or better pay could help support your staffers that are also writers and artists.
