Enter Slate’s “Times Richest & Neediest” writing contest

Filed under: Commentary — editorialconsultant @ 4:50 pm

The online magazine, Slate, likes to poke fun at some of the sillier articles that appear on occasion in The New York Times. And what could be sillier than the woeful tale of a teen who is being ever so slightly less spoiled by her well-to-do parents as they tighten their belts. No more take-out sushi. No more private Pilates classes. What further indignities may yet be visited upon this young woman?

Or, for that matter, her peers?

Slate invites readers to come up with their own ideas. Compose a parody about the “Times Richest and Neediest,” and if yours is the one judged the best, it will appear in Slate. Details here.

Ready. Set. Sharpen those tongues and pencils and have at it.
