Upstanding Citizen

How much of your life is spent sitting at a desk? “Upstanding Citizen” recognizes people who don’t take life sitting down — people like Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Jefferson, Johannes Brahms, Virgina Woolf, and Vladimir Nobokov.

To be featured, send one or more good pictures of you and your standing desk (or treadmill desk, cycling desk, etc.). Include some background: your experience with standing at work, what brand/product you use or how you made it, and any interesting anecdotes. There’s not space to feature every submission, so take a good picture and highlight a unique angle or anecdote. Send to
