Resource Saturdays: Rattle

 Poetry Submission Resource

This week, I have another excellent Poetry Submission Resource for all you poets out there. And if you normally write fiction, give poetry a try. It is very satisfying with short-term completion euphoria.

(I’ve also added a link for this Resource on my Resources page.)



Rattle Poetry Submission Resource

While researching submission venues, I came across this one for Poetry works. This is a contemporary publication that enjoys being eclectic and representing a diverse group of poems in each issue. Rattle has been around for 17 years and they really know their stuff!

From the Rattle website:

Rattle is published in several forms, in effort to find as many readers as possible, but the primary version has been our print issue, originally twice per year, but now appearing quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Each issue is roughly 100 pages of poetry, essays, and an interview with a contemporary poet. Summer and winter issues are open; spring and fall issues focus on a specific stylistic, ethnic, or vocational group. Recent tributes have focused on sonnets, African American poets, cowboy poets, visual poetry, and nurses.

There are several arenas at Rattle you can submit work for. Read the Submission Guidelines before submitting anything so you can be sure to follow their requirements.



Happy Writing!
