Call for Contributors

Humor in America” is looking for contributions for an August issue.  Started in 2011, this website publishes pieces about American humor and humor studies.  We have published over 500 pieces, had over 350k visitors and over 600k page views, and have been attacked by Roseanne Barr (although Ricky Gervais tweeted a nice response).

In January 2017, we decided to go from a weekly (or thereabouts) publication schedule to a twice per year format, in which we hope to publish a number of high quality pieces each year in August and February. Thus, we are looking for contributors who can submit pieces by July 15th for publication in early August.  If you are interested in writing a post, please write Tracy Wuster for more information.

Please review the types of pieces we tend to publish, which are largely focused on humor and its multiple roles in American culture.  We generally to not publish humorous writing.  We do not publish posts meant primarily to drive traffic or advertise something else. We are an academic community dedicated to smart writing about humor. We do not make money and we do not pay money for contributions.
