PIC is looking for creative, thematic, and entertaining Comedy Articles preferably 600-1,000 words. The ideal submission is irreverent but approachable, laugh out loud funny or bitingly witty, spell-checked and at least lightly copyedited, with a descriptive but catchy title. We're not afraid to take chances on a variety of humor styles and formats, but your article should be funny in standalone fashion.
Contributor payment is $35 per accepted article.
Payments are typically sent within 5 days of acceptance. Our average response time is 14 days, and we reply to every submission.
