New Worker Magazine is an independent publication about work.

We publish critical essays, opinion pieces, profiles, articles and occasional news. We favor thoughtful, earnest storytelling from a diverse range of voices. Our content is original and independent and the views expressed belong to their respective author.

We also maintain the Coworking Press List and the NYC Coworking Map.


We started in December 2013 and launched in May 2014 with an all-volunteer team of writers based around the globe.

We’ve been featured on CBS This Morning, Commercial Observer, Coworking Europe, Deskmag, Freelancer’s Union, Shareable, Social Workplaces, Optix, OuiShare, and a bunch of blogs and podcasts.

Our founding editor is Melissa Mesku, an entrepreneur and former freelancer based in New York.

The magazine is ad-free and does not generate revenue (though you are welcome to donate).

We are 100% open to your suggestions, recommendations, late night burning questions, mad revelations, and of course your participation.
