Need a little more humor in your life?
Hopefully, this newsletter can help.
I’m a writer who focuses on humor and my newsletter combines those two topics.
What to expect:
Two emails from me a month that include:
A monthly email with things that have been making me laugh (including books, shows, and short-form humor) as well as writing-related resource links like industry news and submission opportunities. It’s like Oprah’s Favorite Things, but funnier.
A second bonus email that will cover things like deeper dives into book/freelance/humor writing topics and Q&As with humor writers.
If you only want some of these emails and not others, you can adjust your subscription preferences in Substack to indicate that.
I currently have a paid option if you want to support my work, but you’ll get the same content with a free subscription.
Also, a friendly PSA that if you (like me) are subscribed to a lot of Substacks and experiencing some email overwhelm, you can opt to read in the app instead of getting emails by turning on “Smart Notifications.” You can read more about how to do this here: For Android and For iOS.
Some of my most popular pieces include:
“William Carlos Williams Poems for Introverts” on McSweeney’s
“Would-You-Rathers for Parents During Quarantine” (co-written) on McSweeney’s
“Thank You for Calling the Writer Envy Helpline” on Electric Lit
And I wrote a book:
“This will be an invaluable resource for introverts about to become parents, though anyone with kids will appreciate Vick’s perspective on the absurdity of parenthood.”
My humorous advice book for introverted parents, Babies Don’t Make Small Talk, So Why Should I? came out in 2021.
It makes a good gift for the new or expecting parent in your life!
