PunchRiot: Literary, Not Pretentious

Welcome to PunchRiot, our newly-launched platform and subscription-based literary magazine promoting the written word and authors–especially new and indie authors with a masculine (or feminine) edge.

What’s the difference between the website and the magazine?

This website is a open, public online platform for news about our magazine and other projects as well as book reviews, author interviews, author spotlights, new book news, and more.

Our eponymous literary magazine is a downloadable, printable PDF featuring original works of fiction, poetry, humor, observations, and occasionally drawings and cartoons. Regular issues should typically run between 7 and 10 pages, with Special Issues of varying lengths available from time-to-time. Authors interested in submitting work to be considered for publication should visit the Submissions page for guidelines and compensation information.

Be sure to read and download our Sample Edition.

How do I subscribe?

Subscription information and options can be found on our Subscriptions page.

Subscriptions will be available when the first regular issue of The PunchRiot is published in mid-April.
