About

We’re looking for writing that makes us laugh, yes, but we’re also looking for work that shows a deep understanding of humor’s ability to elucidate serious subjects and disturbing truths. As such, your pieces need not be whimsical or slapstick (though they certainly can be). They can be sad and gritty, dark and uncomfortable. We encourage experimentation, but we also have a soft-spot for work grounded in literary convention. We want something that’s more than a good joke—we’re looking for writing that’s layered, deep, and relevant.
