Hey homies!? How's the school year going? It's only going ok? That's too bad. Maybe you need a greater meaning in life. You do! Well, we've got the the that will inject some meaning into your miserable life. It's called the Fall 2016 Sherman Ave. Application!!!
That’s right, homies; we’re looking for a brand new (rotting) crop of the most atrocious, immoral, and all-around heinous scribes that we can find. And there’s a chance that YOU could be in that crop! Isn’t that exciting? ANSWER YES IT’S EXCITING IT’S VERY EXCITING.
So how do you apply? First, download the Sherman Ave application here or here but not here. Fill that baby out the best that you can, and then submit it electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11:59 PM on Friday, October 7th. If we think you’d be a good fit, you will be invited to an individual, in-person interview. If we pull a Carly Rae and REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY like you, we'll invite you to a super special group interview later in October.
A few things to keep in mind: Contrary to popular belief, you do NOT have to be a Northwestern student to write for Sherman Ave. We love everybody in the entire world equally, and if you’re funny, we’d be psyched to have you.
Also, make sure to BE YOURSELF on your application!!!! In all seriousness, we can’t stress this enough: write in your own, personal voice. We want to hear you, and what you think is funny, not what you think a Sherman Ave writer should sound like. If you only want to make jokes about the Enron scandal or the Falklands War, then go for it. Just stay true to who YOU think you are as a writer.

Have a heinous day!
