Default Style Invitational

Another thread that mentioned the size of the Post's readership got me thinking in more detail than I had before. I wrote to Pay Myers this morning.

The Washington Post plays a large role in national and international discourse through its reportage and its example. The way it treats independent contributors is particularly important given that in many fields work recently done by employees is being transferred to contractors.

The Post is a profitable business with a wide readership. If the Style Invitational is of interest to the Post's paying readership, contributors should be paid.

Thank you for your frequent kindnesses.

All best wishes,
Because I said in the other thread that I would probably compete in the Obits comp, I'll add that I've decided against it.
