December 2016 Correspondents
Chortle's Correspondents section is an arena for fans to share their views on any aspect of comedy. We invite general comment pieces about particular aspects of the comedy scene (although reviews of individual shows or performers tend not to be suited to this section except in very rare circumstances). Contributions should be at least 500 words in length, in a similar tone to something you might read in a broadsheet newspaper, and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We reserve the right to edit pieces - although we will be careful not to change the meaning of anything - or not to use them at all. By submitting an article you grant Chortle indefinite licence to use it freely; though you retain the copyright on it to use it elsewhere.
