Editorial Focus

RATTLE is pretty simple: We love poetry and feel that it's something everyone can enjoy. We look for poems that are accessible, that have heart, that have something to say. And then we publish them. Poetry should make you laugh or cry; it should enlighten and entertain.

Tips From the Editor

There are no dos and don’ts. We have room to be eclectic, and seek to
represent the entire stylistic landscape. Formal poems, epic poems,
lyric poems, narrative poems, surreal poems, prose poems, visual
poems—it’s all poetry. The most important thing a poem can be is
memorable. Does it lodge itself in your gut? Does it sing in there?
