Join Our Contributors List ¶

Submissions are currently CLOSED as of 3/26/24!

We put out new issues quarterly.

We’re interested in short (~700 words) left-leaning political satire, non-political comedy that speaks to the current moment, and earnest non-comedic essays from a Leftist perspective.

We’re rarely interested in short fiction or poetry.

About 8 weeks before an issue comes out, we email our contributors list with a call for pitches. If we like a pitch, we’ll ask you to write the full piece.

We pay $50 per piece.

We reserve the right to edit your piece before publishing, but we won’t surprise you with any edits.

Put your email and (optionally) your name in the form below, and we’ll be in touch!

Any questions, email functionallydead at gmail dot com.
