Looking for a gig in comedy writing? Cracked may be the site for you.


One of the largest comedy writing sites on the web, Cracked takes submissions from pretty much anyone. You don’t even need to be over the age of 18. And, if your article is accepted, the pay isn’t too bad. According to Cracked’s “write for us” pitch: “For your first four accepted articles, you will get $150 each. From your fifth article onward, you will get $250. Articles on Cracked are published with your byline and can link back to your own site. This makes the site a solid way to build your writing/comedy resume. That said, the site’s editors expect that your stories will be funny, accurate and well sourced. Read our full review on Cracked here.
