On The Leisure Track:

Creating Radical Alternatives to Traditional Employment
an unpublished manuscript by D. JoAnne Swanson, founder of CLAWS

Hi! Thanks for your interest in CLAWS and my work.

Having decided against self-publishing, I am currently seeking a publisher for my book of personal essays entitled On The Leisure Track. In the meantime, you can read three of the essays from the book right here.

(Note: These are the unedited versions, taken from a column of the same name that I once wrote for a now-defunct webzine. The final versions, which will be included in the manuscript, have been revised substantially).

The Cult of the Job
What I Learned When I Quit My Job: Part One
What I Do For A Living: A Rant

You can also read my welcome and story about the origins of CLAWS.
