Editorial Focus

This is a site dedicated to skillfully written stories that are brief, humorous and engaging. The emphasis will be on wit, word play, absurdity and inspired nonsense. Whether your story is designed to raise a smile or a belly laugh, they want stories that are a refuge from the relentless barrage of negativity, angst, war, and climate catastrophe that dominates the web.

Tips From the Editor

We’re looking for prose that is founded on wit, humour, puns, absurdity and irony. Put away the sledgehammer, the cliches, the tired tropes, and the nastiness.

Monthly cash prizes up to A$50.

What we won’t publish are:

  • Stories that are gratuitously offensive. 
  • Jokes and/or comedy routines. This is a site dedicated to longer written humor.
