[UPDATE] Invention vs. Mimesis
DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013
For our inaugural issue, we are seeking submissions of graduate student work from around the world on the topic of mimesis versus invention. The Rat's Mouth Review, as a journal, seeks to invent itself, few would argue that it is not doing so in a mimetic fashion. We emulate other journals in order to forge our own identity and we do so with the hope of being "of [great] worth." To accomplish this, we require your contributions.
We are seeking submissions of short essays of approximately 1,200 words in length. Longer essays will be accepted too (7,000-9,000 words) but preference will be given to concise explications of texts that analyze the thematic concern of invention versus mimesis. End notes should be kept at a minimum. Book reviews on this topic are also welcome, as are interviews, exhibition reviews, and other scholarly submissions. All submissions should conform to the third edition of the MLA style guide.
