Editorial Focus

Rat’s Ass Review is an online poetry journal whose editorial fancies are no more arbitrary than any other; they are simply more openly so.

Tips From the Editor

Send me your best poetry. I don’t particularly care whether it’s formal or informal, metrical or free verse, rhyming or not. I’ve written all those possibilities myself. A good poem isn’t one that gets the grades for following particular rules. And I’m sure I’ll reject plenty of good poems anyway.
