Workhorse is a community and publishing company. We want to make studying and publishing more accessible to working writers by collaborating with a supportive, diverse, and talented community. 

Currently we are working on the following: 

Lexington Poetry Month: a month long celebration of poetry and writing challenge 

The Bluegrass Bookend: a radio show and podcast that airs on Lexington Community Radio 

The Gauntlet Workshop: a year-long intense and generative workshop for Kentuckians 

Ought Hours Mentorship: a 5-month long study with a professional and established writer 

Rabbit Catastrophe Press: a small press imprint dedicated to the handmade book and review 

We are a small team. Christopher McCurry and Robin Rahija co-founded Workhorse in 2015. Since then we've built up a small but dedicated team of volunteers to help us with our projects. We wouldn't be doing this without the support and skill of countless other working writers. 

We started this page because he want to pay writers and creators! 

Check the details on the side for how to support various projects. If you can't give financially, you can still help us out if you want! 

We need content creators, book binders, idea generators, motivators. We want to know you and work with you! Visit workhorsewriters.com to get in touch.
