As we're currently self-funded, we're unable to compensate contributors with an appropriate fee. However, every contributor will receive 20% off every issue they purchase. Contributors also receive digital tear sheets which they're able to display online and include in their portfolios. All Cringe contributors also receive a space in our Hall of Fame indefinitely.
Got an embarassing story you need to get off your chest?
Something you're OK being ashamed of?
Maybe you're just a good Samaritan who wants to make the rest of us
feel better about ourselves?
Get in, loser! We're going to Cringe town!
Feel free to share your most embarassing, cringe-worthy moments with us here, so we can all laugh at our own, messy humanity when reading about it. It's definitely not therapy, but maybe the memory will plague you a little less after writing about it.
