Slackjaw readers and patrons of comedy, my name is Adam Dietz and I am the editor of Slackjaw’s monthly newsletter Yapjaw. Throughout the year, I’ve worked to showcase some of the best humor writing on the internet via this newsletter. And if I’m being totally honest, I think I did a great job!

There was was an abundance of high quality satire published on Slackjaw in 2023. Honestly, as someone who worked as a guest editor for Slackjaw for the latter part of the year, I can attest to the fact that there was a lot of quality satire that Slackjaw had to turn down.

In my most read pieces of 2022 newsletter last year, I thanked a bunch of people for providing me with guidance, opportunities, and so on. I’m not doing that again! But I do want to shoutout Emily Menez and Sianna Lani for being promoted from Slackjaw guest editors to full-fledged editors for 2024. I will be joining them in their editorial duties.

What’s left to say? Probably not a whole heck of a lot. I appreciate all the continued interest in Yapjaw, even if the vast majority of its readership is insecure comedy writers scrolling through to see if their work was featured. I know you and I see you because I am you.

On this week’s edition of Yapjaw, we’re counting down the 10 most read Slackjaw pieces for the year that was 2023.
