We love hearing from our readers.
Constructive feedback, suggestions, jokes, advice, questions, musings about what you fed your cat for breakfast, lollipops, love, and any form of chocolate all gratefully received.
You can also communicate with us by commenting on blog posts, or in our social media feeds. We read and respond to each and every message. Apart from the spambots and the trolls, obviously.
If you can write stuff that’s funny, and you’ve always fancied being a big fish in a small pond, here’s your chance!
Never Mind The Bedsocks is a humour blog that celebrates and commiserates with the trials and tribulations of Generation X (anyone born between 1964 and 1980). Our blog content is currently produced by a very small team, and we are always keen to hear from fresh, funny, entertaining voices who would like to join the party. If you have a message to share that will resonate with our specific audience, then we’d love to hear from you!
Although we are sadly currently unable to pay hard cash for third-party content, we do offer guest contributors a T-shirt of their choice from our online shop. Writers get a byline on the article, and all published submissions are shared on our social media channels and in our fortnightly newsletter. In other words, it’s a good place to start for writers and cartoonists who are looking to build an audience and/or add published pieces to a portfolio.
To submit your article / poem / cartoon / idea to Never Mind The Bedsocks, please email a sample of your work (200-300 words) to us via the contact form above. Please type “Writer Submission” in the subject line of your message, and also give us an idea about the topic(s) you would like to write about. Tell us if / where you’ve been published before (if relevant).
We read everything sent in to us, and we’ll be in touch if we would like to publish your piece on the site – usually within 10-14 days.
