Editorial Focus: 

Works & Days prizes content; it exists as a challenge to the notion that the Internet is only good for the fleeting and ephemeral. Our aim is to publish creative work of substance and craftsmanship, in any genre that our format will allow. To do so, we have created a space that is both rigorously designed and seasonally curated. Works & Days publishes neither criticism nor advertising, only new work. We are not beholden to any school or ideology, but rather place faith in a simple maxim: good work is its own reward.
