Rattle

While we’re always open to regular submissions of all forms of poetry and artwork, every issue of Rattle includes a special tribute dedicated to some social, vocational, or stylistic group.

Poetry: This issue will feature Immigrant Poets. Please explain how this applies to you and affects your poetry, if at all, in your contributor note. We no longer publish prose essays, but instead use these contributor notes as micro-essays at the back of each issue. The poems themselves don’t have to be about immigration—we want to celebrate and explore the range of work that immigrant poets are producing. If using Submittable, please be sure to select the Immigrant Poets category.

Artwork: We still need cover art for this issue. To submit, use the artwork category on Submittable. Rarely we publish internal black and white art that relates to the theme—though usually, we’d rather use the space for as much poetry as possible.

Deadline: October 15, 2017

Payment for print publication (from us to you in exchange for your work) is $100 and a complimentary one-year subscription to the magazine, including the issue in which your work appears. Contributors also may pre-order additional copies of their issue at our cost to produce. Payment for online-only work is $50.
