The staff members of the Misnomer are typically very funny, somewhat organized, and rarely quiet. If you'd like to join us, fill out our writers application. We seek new writers at the beginning of each semester and new editors at the end of each school year, selecting editorial leadership from within the organization. To retain membership, one must regularly attend meetings and get published (somewhat) regularly.
The Madison Misnomer should represent a unified voice that critiques and comments on current political, cultural or social phenomena and issues. We present opinions that might not otherwise be heard in a way that is smart, funny and relatable to students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
We seek to create a collaborative working environment where writers can work and improve upon their creative writing skills and provide an outlet of publication for varying genres and styles of humorous, satirical writing that can include multiple mediums beyond print.
