Welcome to The Rival at UMD’s home for satirical contributions. Here’s how to get started:
- Get writing!
Write about anything you want. Put together 1-2 satirical pieces that show off your writing skills, sharp wit, distinct point of view, etc.
- Headline it.
Give your work a title that makes the reader laugh.
- Provide an image.
Find a picture that will be associated with your work. Make sure that it’s legally acquired, AKA available for re-use from Google image or Flickr, or a photo you took yourself.
- Send it in!
When you’re ready for your work to be reviewed, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE, ONLY SATIRICAL CONTENT. WE WILL NOT PUBLISH ANY REAL NEWS PIECES.
If you’re unsure about the process or want to pitch an idea before writing, feel free to email us with your questions!
Want to Keep Writing?
You can submit as often as you like – if we love what you do we may have a spot for you on our staff!
Thank you for sharing your skills with The Rival at UMD. We look forward to seeing your work.
