Make Us Laugh

Although we don’t solicit article-length manuscripts, short humour contributions or jokes are welcome.

Everyone’s got a funny story. And if yours makes us chuckle, we’ll give you a free subscription to Reader’s Digest magazine upon publication. So send us your humorous anecdote or joke, and if we publish it in Reader’s Digest, you’ll be laughing at all the funny stories we print. But remember, competition is fierce. Every year, thousands of readers send us their stories. And after reading them all, the editors publish the best ones in:

@Work, As Kids See It and Life’s Like That. We also publish the first submission of a joke in Laughter, the Best Medicine.
