Created by Mike Jones and a bunch of mates from the contributors and posters on the ABC’s Unleashed series of Blogs, the Pig’s Arms exists to allow truly unleashed contributors space to get their material published in the cosy atmosphere of the pub.
The Pig’s Arms welcomes original contributions – stories, poems, pictures and cartoons, sound and video clips. We especially value humour, wit and sophistication and preferably 500-1,000 words in length. Longer stories can be serialised and published in sequence.
Stories published previously must be accompanied by an attribution – by who, where and when. And if we publish you here first, we would hope that you afford us the same courtesy.
We do not pay contributors. If you would like to become a new contributor, send an email to
with a brief on your piece so we can contact you. Your contact details and your brief will not be published.
We try our best to respect each other and other people’s copyrights and we tend to follow the blog guidelines like those for the Times. In general that means nothing plagiarised, defamatory, pornographic, advocating hatred, discrimination or violence or illegal activities. Any article found to fail this standard will doom you to a tortured eternity trapped in a lift with Tony Abbott.
