Watermark, the annual, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by graduate students in the English Department at California State University, Long Beach, is now seeking submissions for our tenth volume. Watermark is dedicated to publishing original critical and theoretical papers concerned with the fields of rhetoric and composition and literature of all genres and periods. Watermark also accepts reviews of recent books published in these fields of study. As this journal is intended to provide a forum for emerging voices, only student work will be considered.

The deadline to submit an essay or review for consideration is Monday, February 8, 2016. Early submissions are strongly encouraged and will receive priority in the peer-review process.

All submissions must include a cover page that includes your name, phone number, email address, and the title of your essay or book review. All submissions should be approximately 10-15 pages and must be typed in MLA format with a standard 12-point font. Please do not include your name on the essay itself, as it will be reviewed by a blind peer-review panel. With the subject heading "Watermark 2016 Submission," please email papers and cover letters as separate Word attachments to: csulbwatermark@gmail.com.
