357aaf4c9a3494ed5c4aaedd1ff379b1.250x240x1Work Stew’s seventh writing contest, which kicks off today, isn’t going to involve the usual 600-word entry.

Instead, we’re going to attempt to harness the collective intelligence of the Stew to create a list: Ten Pearls of Hard-Earned, Work-Related Wisdom.

Here’s how to participate:

1. Send me your wisdom. Your pearls can be emailed to me: kate@workstew.com. Subject line: Hard-Earned Wisdom. You will receive a confirmation from me within 24 hours.

Rules: 100 words max, per pearl. No limit on the number of pearls each person can submit. Only entries that have not been published elsewhere are eligible.

Deadline: Midnight PST on November 15, 2015.

2. By November 22, 2015, I will select 10 pearls of wisdom to publish in the form of a list. Each contributor will be cited, unless you choose to remain anonymous.

3. The usual $200 prize will be distributed among the writers of the top three pearls. $100 for Pearl #1. $60 for Pearl #2. $40 for Pearl #3.

To follow along as the contest unfolds, join us on Facebook and Twitter. I’ll provide occasional updates along with the usual work-related tidbits we discuss there.

Note: Thanks to Michael T Heath for inspiring this round’s prompt.
