While ISBW is for beginners who are easily intimidated by rejection and self-doubt, Ditch Diggers is the business of writing, when the craft is not as important as the deadline. (Oh the craft is very important. But deadline without craft can be worked with, but craft without deadline is pointless.) We don’t worry about art here, we worry about paying bills with your writing. Because ditch diggers don’t get ditch digger block, so we refuse to let writer’s block stop us from doing our work. We’re interviewing on an invite-only basis.
