Trop is an online literary magazine based in Los Angeles. It features serialized creative writing, literary and pop culture criticism, interviews, personal essays, visual art, reviews of fake movies, and humor writing in The Weather. Before Trop took to the internet, it was a performance series at a place called Metropolis Café—the Trop—in Milledgeville, Georgia.
Right now, Trop is looking for humor writing for The Weather. Please read the section to get a sense of our style, and keep your submissions under 1,000 words. We pay $20 for accepted Weather pieces. Send submissions to submissions [at] tropmag.com.
