Editorial Focus

Riprap highlights new and emerging writers from across the country as well as enlightening interviews of award winning, published writers who are featured in the CSULB English Department’s Visiting Writers Series. The journal offers a humble invitation to talented and aspiring writers of all genres and is open to everyone. Specifically, Riprap publishes short fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry. The journal is especially interested in work that is innovative, forward-thinking, and as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.

Tips From the Editor

Flash Fiction
Now accepting flash fiction (sudden fiction, short shorts, miniatures, postcard fiction; call it as you will.) If it's short 'n sweet and we love it, we'll publish it. Up to TWO stories per submission. A word count between 500-1,000 per story.

Short Fiction and Creative Nonfiction
Only one story or essay submission is allowed per reading period. If more than one story or essay is submitted, only the first one sent will be considered. A word count in the 2,000-7,000 range is preferred. Longer pieces (10,000 words max) must be especially high quality.

Up to FOUR poems may be submitted. Do not exceed a combined total of 8 pages. (No single poem should be longer than 5 pages.)
