About Us

Founded in February 2019, The Takoma Torch enriches the lives of residents in Takoma Park and the D/M/V region with satirical articles that only those with a sense of humor can appreciate. Believe it or not, some people actually think these articles are real, and that makes it even funnier. All names used are completely fictional, except for public figures.

Know someone or something that needs to get torched? Send a headline or idea our way (takomatorch@gmail.com)! While we prefer only headline submittals, if you do feel the need to send us an entire article, please keep it under 300 words. The Takoma Torch reserves the right to edit any submission as we see fit, and authors will remain anonymous on public posts.
