RipRap Literary Journal is designed and produced annually by students in the Master of Fine Arts, Creative Writing program at California State University Long Beach (CSULB). We highlight poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, visual art, and criticism from emerging and established poets, writers, and artists from across the country.
The journal is especially interested in work that is innovative, forward-thinking, and as entertaining as it is thought-provoking. New editions are published each May.
