I’m pleased to be able to share a great opportunity for humor writers who want to get some publishing credits. You can go to the Sneak Peeks page on this website to learn about a chance to be published in a humor anthology.
When I quit my day job to take on the glamorous lifestyle of a humor writer, I had no idea that you have to be published in order to get published. It makes about as much sense as the Pythagorean theorem, which starts by multiplying and dividing a bunch of letters in order to get a number.
Cue Karla’s head exploding.
Ninth grade math aside, a new writer has to pretty much set himself on fire in order to get noticed by the publishing industry. So why do people decide to start a writing career? Because you can only play so much solitaire at the office before they catch on to you. By the way, when you crawl under your desk to take a little nap, you’re not fooling anyone.
So when you get a chance to get noticed that doesn’t involve lighter fluid and a trip to the burn ward, give it your best shot. We want you to succeed, so bring it.
