Unpublished Poets – Rattle: Ends on April 15, 2018
Our Fall 2018 issue will be dedicated to previously unpublished poets. The poems may be written on any subject, in any style or length, but must be written by those who have never had a poem published in the past. The goal of this special tribute is to celebrate the first publication for 15 – 20 poets. For two decades, Rattle has been a testament to the fact that publishing histories do not matter—powerful poems lurk inside all of us, whether we’ve been published before or not. Issue #61 will highlight that. Please include a brief note about your personal background and how it has influenced your pursuit of poetry.
Feel free to submit up to four previously unpublished poems (or four pages of very short poems), but these must be sent as a single submission in ONE document. Do not include your name or contact info within the file. Do not submit more work to this category until we’ve replied.
For full guidelines and other information, go to: http://www.rattle.com/submissions/guidelines/
