CRATE, a new literary journal out of the University of California, Riverside,
seeks critical prose that explores areas of literary hybridity and addresses
nuanced aspects of writings that have challenged the boundaries of genre for
our inaugural issue entitled 'Controlled Burn.'
Submissions may be a paper of fresh critical inquiry on contemporary writing
or a tightly focused review of contemporary writing published within the past
five years. CRATE has an interest in the writing of Southern California,
particularly of the Inland Empire/Riverside County area. Still we welcome all
works from diverse writers and geographies that address out theme, controlled
burn, and/or our focus on hybridity.
