Helping America procrastinate since 1636

July 12, 2024
Mission Statement

Founded in 2003 by Harvard Graduate students, The Harvard Satyrical Press is Harvard University's only official graduate student humor magazine, sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Harvard Graduate Student Council. We specialize in news format satire and are unabashedly inspired on a daily basis by The Onion.

The major objective of the Harvard Satyrical Press (HSP) is to publish a high quality, satirical humor magazine run by Harvard graduate students, but with contributions also encouraged from students in the professional schools and from undergraduates. Our belief that a little more comedy is a crucial ingredient towards improving the quality of life of students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), and the Harvard student community at large. The magazine, which began as a website only, has been distributing printed issues around Harvard campus each semester since 2004. HSP will, in practice, be largely directed towards GSAS students, although, in the spirit of inclusiveness, it will accept and encourage submissions from Harvard students outside GSAS. Although submissions will be largely limited to the Harvard student community, the HSP audience can in principle extend to Harvard faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and staff, and in reality, anyone in the world who happen to find the website, and for some reason think it's funny. This will be the first and only current official graduate student run humor magazine, and we hope to give the existing undergraduate humor publications a little healthy competition, and maybe even convince some of their best comedians to venture over to the dark side.
