If you have articles for us, ***SUBMIT THEM HERE***. 

If you’re reading this page, you’re probably thinking about submitting to Satire V. That’s amazing! This is our first year trying out open submissions, and we’re excited to hear from you.

There are a few overlapping goals of open submissions:

  • To give people who wouldn’t normally comp Satire V an outlet for their 1-2 hot takes a semester

  • To improve the diversity of Satire V content by attracting perspectives normally not represented by the organization

  • To give people interested in comedy more opportunities to practice and receive feedback on their writing

To submit, upload your articles as Word Documents or PDFs via this Google Form. Articles should be fewer than 500 words, although that's not a hard and fast rule. 


HOW TO GET STARTED

  1. Take a look at some of our previous articles, whether they be fake news (example: 1234), area mans ( 1234), op-eds (1234), Buzzfeed-type listicles (12), or quizes (12). You can also check out publications like The Onion, Clickhole, and Reductress for more examples. 
  2. Read this helpful guide on what makes a good premise! We'd like to cover more world news, critiques of campus institutions and/or resources, STEM, stores in Harvard Square, and identity-based experiences or concerns, so if you have an idea in one of those categories by all means write it! But don't feel restricted to these subject matters.
  3. Ask your friends and roommates for feedback on headlines and jokes. If you've sufficiently annoyed the shit out of them, you can also email satirev.notes@gmail.com to gt quick feedback from an associate editor.

PUBLISHING

All selected articles will be labeled that they're from a contributor when posted on Facebook. Like with normal Satire V content from staff, there will be no personal bylines, but contributors are encouraged to humblebrag to friends and family

FEEDBACK ... FOR US!

If you have any advice to give, email satirev.notes@gmail.com or fill out this anonymous feedback form. Everyone who submits will get a survey with room for feedback.
