  • Additional info

    Most pieces are 300–800 words. We don’t publish fake-news/Onion-style pieces. Only one submission at a time, please. Contrary to popular belief, we aren’t multitasking robots. Topical/timely submissions: Because we are prone to occasionally go live in a treehouse with no computer for a few days, 48-hour topical news cycle pieces are not the best fit for us. We love evergreen humor though! Seasonal timely pieces (New Year’s, Halloween, Xmas, etc.) are welcome, and we adore it when you send those 3+ weeks in advance. Payment. We pay via Medium’s partner program (free to join, some eligibility criteria apply).
