The Bureau Dispatch

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Bureau Dispatch is an ode to the writer’s bureau; an ongoing collection of stories accompanied by photographs of writers at their places of work. The Bureau Dispatch is a celebration of working writers everywhere: forging onward alone, bound together by craft and camaraderie; a collection of one-of-a-kind micro stories accompanied by photographs of writers at their places of work—where the focus is as much on the people behind the words as it is on the stories themselves.
