RHINO is a high-quality perfect-bound annual journal with significant online content including audio poems, interviews, and online poems. We invite traditional or experimental work reflecting passion, originality, artistic conviction, and a love affair with language. We encourage emerging and established writers throughout the United States and around the world. Submissions are read by multiple editors with various tastes, all looking for quality work. We call ourselves “eclectic” in the best sense of the word.
