Comedy Writers Needed

2009-10-20 22:04:45 by Cambo

Hi guys,

I edit the free commuter magazine newspaper "The Rag" that's floating about a bit in Sydney, and I'm fielding submissions from promising comedy writers.

Here's the SCOOP:

we're increasing our distributive girth and we need fresh new content. if you think you're funny and you've got an eye for stupid, we need 500-word articles on issue-based material, rather than topical jokes - because we're published fortnightly the jokes you write could not see light until after their expiry. they're not worth your effort or ours.

so for an example, we've just run an article on gay marriage and another on wikipedia. we're not tied to any agenda or point of view so you can come at any idea from any angle, which is a terrific liberty to be afforded and one we're appreciative of wasting.

you're welcome to submit ideas for stories but if someone writes a good, funny article on racism and you just write a proposal for it, we're going to take the one that's completed and good to print.

we don't mind solitary articles but we'd LOVE frequent contributors so our little rag doesn't become too mercenary.

the work is UNPAID - we're doing it for the love. but writing for us will get you real experience as a comedy writer, and will get your work read by thousands of Sydney-siders.

Email any submissions as an attachment to - we look forward to hearing from you!

How about an article about how Sydney is full of wankers?
I thought you were in Queensland...

Cambo responds:

i lived in queensland but i feel more comfortable with the sydney community, as i love to fiddle with my knob

I'm almost certain I can work in at least 6 Mario observations about it.

i wish i was funny :(

Hmm... I might wanna do something on childhood obesity. Is that fine, or too overused? Do you want something else?

Cambo responds:

if you can make it funny without being cruel, it's fine. if it's just going to be "fat kids need to get off the couch", it's too overused.

Any way we can grab hold of an old issue, so we can see what we're getting ourselves into? Hehe

Cambo responds:

it's hard unless you're in sydney because we make this whole thing with scissors and photocopiers and the few generous donations we get go into printing costs. i can email you an article or two if you'd like though.

Hmm... It sounds like you guys are funny, but more subtle humor than in-your-face humor. Well, guess I could send it to you, just tell me if you think it should be less... you know, like it is.

Also, I'd much rather copy&paste the writing as a PM on newgrounds. Would that be OK? You could always just C&P it into a word document and print it out if you want to except it.

Cambo responds:

that's fine, it just might take a little extra time for me to get back to you
