Calls for Submissions
While we're always open to regular submissions of poetry, e-reviews, essays on writing, and artwork, each issue of RATTLE contains a special tribute section dedicated to some ethnic, vocational, or stylistic group. We're also looking for essays on specific subjects. Listed below are our upcoming calls for submissions, along with their deadlines. These calls are subject to change at any time, with the more distant issues less certain. If you have any questions, feel free to email Tim Green:
Poetry: The tribute section will feature poetry written by Canadians. The poems don't have to be about Canada -- we're interested in any subject or style poem, as long as you are or have been a Canadian citizen. To submit via email or hardcopy, follow the regular guidelines, but please note in the cover letter that you are submitting for the Canadian Poets tribute.
Essays: We'd like to publish either a series of short essays on different aspects of Canadian poetry, or a longer introduction to the history of poetry in Canada, or how contemporary Canadian poetry has developed. Please query with any questions. Essays can be any length.
Artwork: We still need cover and divider art for this issue. Photography, paintings, or collages relating to the theme will all be considered. Submissions are accepted as lo-res email attachments (jpegs prefered), or by mail on a CD. Production will require hi-res images (300dpi @ 9.25" x 6.125").
Reading Period Opens: August 1st, 2010 -- Deadline for submissions: February 1st, 2011
