I set a goal for myself this year to get back on McSweeney’s Internet Tendencies after a two-year hiatus. McSweeney’s is still the top-tier humour site in North America, in my opinion, and striving to get a post there was a way to force myself out of my writing doldrums.
I write this not to brag (well, maybe a little) but to point out that I probably wouldn’t have written these pieces let alone had them accepted if I weren’t a McSweeney’s patron. I pay $5 a month, and in return I not only support quality humour but I also get the McSweeney’s Patreon emails, which include calls for content. All three of the pieces above were the results of these calls.
Since McSweeney’s began its Patreon campaign, they’ve also begun paying writers, which I think we can all get behind.
So, if you
- are a humour writer
- enjoy humour writing
- want to support humour writers
- want to support the best humour site going
You should consider becoming a McSweeney’s Patron. That is all.
