ABOUT THE JOURNAL
ABOUT RAW JOURNAL OF ARTS
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We want to read pieces that surprise us, make us think, make us wish that we had written them. We want writing that grabs us, conveys a unique perspective… is raw, honest, intellectual, imaginative. We want to see the concrete and the abstract. We want writing that elicits emotional reactions. Works that manipulate the written word in unexpected ways. We may not know what exactly we are looking for in a particular issue until we read it. We want to see works that are nothing like what we’ve ever read before, that describe or show something in a way different than anything else.So, be different, be unusual, be weird, be unique! Be a little bit edgy and twisted; be experimental and innovative. Be elegant or jagged or somewhere in between. Show us the human condition. Show us the world. The past. The present. The future. Show us you. Show us anything! Show us your mastery of language. Show us your craft, your ideas, pieces that leave us thinking long after we’ve finished reading them and pieces that we want to read over and over again. We want to see your creativity.
