About Us

Our aim at Rising Action is to cultivate a space where all writers feel comfortable to come and share their work with the world. We are writers too and there are few things that we dislike more than long wait times and wading through pretentious and often meandering "about us" and "what we like" sections, so around here we keep things quick and simple: The only thing we care about is great writing. So, whether you write joyful odes, heart-wrenching stories, or hilarious haikus, we want to read them! Check out our submissions tab for opportunities and give us a follow on Instagram @risingactionreview.
