RIOT ACT is an online journal for comedy writing – fiction, articles, poetry and more!

We love all things funny and thought provoking and believe in the power of comedy as catharsis – taking power from the things that are difficult to talk about and laughing about them instead.

We’re particularly interested in work by women and non-binary writers, LGBTQ+ writers and writers of colour, but everyone is welcome. If you’re not sure if your piece fits with our objectives, please submit anyway! We will be happy to read and provide feedback.

We’re based in Glasgow, Scotland and love UK comedy – but we’d love to hear from you no matter where in the world you are!
