The magazine was launched in March 2002 by author and publisher Jackie Corley[1] with the help of the late Paula Anderson. In 2003, a publishing unit called Word Riot Press was developed as a spinoff of the online magazine.[2] Word Riot Press publishes anthologies, short story collections, poetry, and novels. Authors published by the press include Paula Bomer, Mike Young, David Barringer, Timmy Waldron, Nick Antosca, Scott Bateman and Pulitzer Prize winner Gregory Pardlo.
