Newsbiscuit Writer of the Month Competition March 2024




Those who experience Newsbiscuit by dipping into the odd post on Twitter or Facebook, or by wandering onto the home page may not be aware we run a monthly competition to discover the writer of the month. As part of the competition round-up we post all the articles posted in the previous month along with all the headlines and also the winning cartoon of the month on a blog.


Enjoy a walk through the March 2024 monthly round-up - all the articles are hyperlinked. If you have a favourite Newsbiscuit author you can find all of their work co-located together. If you think you can do as well, or even better than the writers listed this month then consider joining - it's free and we're a supportive bunch.

Deskpilot has topped the leaderboard (again) with a brilliant set of headlines plus a not too shabby run of FPs and NiBs.  SteveB has kept the pressure on and eppursimuouve brings up a creditable third place.


As usual the hyperlinked subs are at the top of the list, in author alphabetical order, followed by the March cartoon of the month, followed by the headlines listed in author alphabetical order.
