The Raymond Carver Review (journal, deadline 3/15/07)

The Raymond Carver Review, a new, peer-reviewed, electronic annual,
hosted by Kent State University and published in cooperation with The
International Raymond Carver Society, seeks to publish the best
critical work both from established and emerging Carver scholars world-

The Raymond Carver Review welcomes essays that explore the literary and
cultural significance of the work of American writer Raymond Carver.
While articles on Carver's poetry and fiction are anticipated, we would
also like to see studies of Carver's non-fiction. Of particular
interest are critical approaches to Carver that discuss his work in
relation to class, gender, culture, politics, place, milieu, and
theory, both nationally and internationally. We are also interested in
studies of Carver's writing process, influences, craft, technique, and
fictional or poetic theory. Essays on writers or work connected to
Carver in convincing, meaningful ways will also be considered, as well
as Review Copies of books relating to all aspects of Carver studies.

Work accepted for publication in The Raymond Carver Review will be
available to readers, researchers and scholars as downloadable PDF
files. Back issues will be available as archives.
