Working from home is a common trend since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to an article on, more than 16 million United States workers have transitioned to working from home since the start of the pandemic, with that number likely being even higher now.

Are you one of the more than 16 million workers who have set up an office at home? If so, the Brainerd Dispatch wants to hear from you.

For this year’s Progress edition, the Dispatch is asking its readers for submissions regarding their home office spaces. Are you at a kitchen table? Did you repurpose a family room or spare bedroom? What have you done to make your work-from-home space work for you?

Send us a description of your space, what your job entails, how differently it is from your regular office or work space. We’d love to see photos of your space as well.

For possible publication in the 2020 Progress Edition, email your submissions to DeLynn Howard at or mail them to Brainerd Dispatch, Attn: DeLynn Howard, P.O. Box 974, Brainerd, MN 56401.
