Matt Mitchell is the creator of The Ostrich, Alabama's leading source for questionably accurate news. Since 2012, Mitchell has been writing satirical headlines about small town life in the rural South and amassing over 70,000 followers on Twitter and Facebook. In 2016, al.com, the largest (real) news media outlet in Alabama, became the home for The Ostrich's weekly satirical news articles. You can read his debut article on the site here.

Mitchell's work has been featured in several national publications, including The Washington Post, USA Today, The New York Post, and Teen Vogue (yeah, he didn't see that one coming either.) He has started working on his first book, but there is currently no anticipated date of release. Or title. Or plot.
