essay contest boss

Do you have any stories of inspiring, horrible, strange or otherwise memorable bosses tucked away in the annals of your work history?

Maybe your current superior comes by your desk with something worthy of a heavy eye roll a dozen times a day.

You can stop venting through vague Facebook posts and confusing Snapchat selfies.

We’ve found a way you can turn the experience into cash!

Work Stew, a website of work-related essays and interviews, wants to hear about your “memorable bosses” for its free writing contest.

Memorable Bosses Writing Prompt

“Tell us about the manager who has affected you the most — for better or for worse. No real names, please. Just vivid, juicy tales from your work life, past or present.”

The winner receives $200 and publication on Work Stew.

Other entries may also be published, but there are no additional cash prizes.

Essays must be no more than 600 words and previously unpublished. Submit via email before February 15 to [email protected] (full contest details here).
