Submission Guidelines for Writers
OutFunny is looking for new and experienced writers to
contribute humor pieces in the range of 150 words. Rate of pay will
be $25 per article. We will accept longer articles, but every word
should need to be there, and we don't want to be bored for even a
second. Don't make us respond TL;DR to you, because that's a jerk
thing to do. Also, priority will be given to authors who have
accumulated high scores trying to OutFunny our writers, which is a
unique function of the site.
Some of our influences include Cracked, The Onion, and
McSweeney's Internet Tendency. We enjoy broad humour, celebrity
send-ups, lists, fake news, whatever makes us laugh. Don't feel you
have to mimic the style of the current articles on the site. We
want diverse voices. That's why we're reaching out to you.
We'll try to get back to you as quickly as possible. If your
piece comes close we may suggest some tweaks, and if you're okay
with it, we may even tweak it ourselves.
Bylines are optional, so if you're just starting out and want
one, by all means. If you are regularly writing for Esquire and The
New Yorker, but don't want to sully your good name, that's also
cool. (Deep down we know even Esquire writers need $25 most of the
