Meet the Troop

Ever looked at a satirical news story and thought “I can do better than that”? Well, why not give it a go?

We are a new online, topical, poo flinging satirical news site, looking to carve out our little niche on the internet. Because we are new, we’ve a unique opportunity for budding writers to join us.

Currently, our troop is made up of writers, authors and contributors with very different levels of experience, from professionals to complete amateurs just having a laugh.

At the moment we are finding our voice, our tone and you can help us.

If you are a seasoned professional you will already know the score and we would welcome your help, experience and any feedback you can give us.

However if, like us you are starting out, then give it a go. We will be kind, we want to encourage people new to writing. Several of us started out but sending in satirical stories to online papers, just to see if they could get published. They did, it was fun so they decided to carry on.

As for fame, fortune and what not. There really isn’t any. We’ve no income, we’re not operating on a commercial basis so paying anyone is not currently an option. This may change in the future, we would like to ultimately pay contributors but realistically it will not be anytime soon.

So, if you fancy writing under a pseudonym (or even your real name), and for no pay this may be the gig for you.

There is satisfaction in your work in print and having it shared. You can, of course claim the credit on anything you do outside of here, and cite yourself as a published writer.

It is a grand way to take the piss, it becomes addictive and for those of us fed up with many things in the modern world it serves as a form of therapy. Sometimes the only weapon with which we can kick back, is ridicule.
