How can I become a writer for What Exit NJ?
First and always—Please read through all content on What Exit NJ?, and get a general sense of our point of view and type of humor.
Also, you might try reading The Onion, because we model the type of humor and satire in structure after their content, and what they have done since day one — but while The Onion focuses on national and international news, sports culture and the like—at What Exit NJ? our focus is New Jersey, and only New Jersey. Culture, politics, sports, business, entertainment, your neighborhood, — the Garden State, its history, future, current events. If New York or national or international news has to do with New Jersey in some way, we will consider it. Be creative.
Any unsolicited freelance material sent to What Exit NJ will not be read and will not be returned.
What we are looking for:
- Outrageous humor that is indirect and satirical. (Think “The Onion” in style.)
- Spoofing individuals as long as obscene language is not used.
- Nonsensical humor that is purely made up just for the sake of being fun and doesn’t really serve any purpose. This can include faulty logic, non-sequiturs, and silly conclusions. (fun, sarcastic, and for the most part clean)
- All original material.
What we are not looking for:
- Direct insults and mudslinging. And, yes, we know Chris Christie is fat.
- Actual news stories. (a story can stem from a true to life scenario, situation, or person and even seem real, but it cannot be an actual story)
- Copied stories from other satirical websites. (themes may be similar from time to time at the fault of happenstance, however plagiarism is not tolerated)
