How To Know When It's Time To Quit Your Job
BooksI am one
HeroesMy dad, Otto Bodor, who taught be the value of hard work.
This anthology, edited by Chris Bodor for Poet Plant Press, is an attempt to tell the story of what it means to have to work for a living. The editor began his search for work on the subject of work in his backyard: St. Johns County, Florida. Then, he broadened the scope to include far away voices from San Pedro, Budapest, Sweden, and NY City, and beyond. Creative folks were invited by Bodor to send a poem, essay, or image that was created "on the clock" or on the job. Positive poems exploring memorable work experiences were also included in the mix.
