The Shovel

Australia's second favourite source of satire, after Today Tonight.

Can I write for The Shovel?

We get asked this a bit. We generally don’t accept submissions, mainly because we can’t offer payment or acknowledgement, or even a byline. So if you’re after fame or fortune, it’s probably not really going to work out between us.

But if you’re just looking to do your bit for the advancement of satire and the marginal enhancement of Australia’s media landscape, then please send your ideas (headlines only) to

Just be aware that if you send us something, we reserve the right to use, morph, edit or bastardise it. It makes us feel powerful and important.
