RIOT MATERIAL is LA’s premier literary-cultural magazine with an eye on art, word and forward-aiming thought. We likewise focus on niche cinema — Cinema Disordinaire is our best of — Riot Sounds (tracks representing the best in new music) and the latest in Jazz. Our vision, much in the spirit of this great city, is ever-global, working as we do with the best writers, artists, critical and imaginative thinkers from around the world.
RIOT MATERIAL accepts no advertising, so please support via the PayPal link at the bottom of each post. We dearly appreciate all of your contributions!! Your every dollar helps pay for our writers and is key to maintaining our exceptional content!!
We welcome your ideas for reviewing art, literature, music and film, and will consider interviews, profiles of interesting personalities and scenes, social and political commentary, and illustrations entering the public discourse from angles preferably humorous, satirical or of lacerating wit.
If pursuing the review, we encourage you to lean toward an era not long passed when reviews themselves were of an art, a distillation of blood and breath. To that end, let your literary heart, which is adverse to formula, lead.
Proposals can be sent to submissions(at)riotmaterial.com, with subject lines such as Review, Interview, Illustration, etc — designations adding considerably to our timeliness in response. Thank you so much in advance!!
