respond!

May 15, 2017

This is just a reminder: Rattle’s invitation to submit poems in response to the news remains open. Here’s what Rattle says:

“Poets Respond — a poem written within the last week about a public event that occurred within the last week will appear every Sunday. Our only criterion for selection is the quality of the poem; all opinions and reactions are welcome. Selected poets will receive $50. To have your own poem considered for next week’s posting, submit at the link on this page before midnight Friday PST. Any poems sent before the midnights of Sunday and Tuesday will also be considered for bonus postings mid-week.”

Don’t just sit there and seethe. Rattle!

RattleThis post comes by way of reminder and encouragement. Faced with horror, it’s easy to become glued to the media, paralyzed in shock. The poetry magazine Rattle offers this alternative: Poets Respond.

Rattle invites you to submit “a poem written within the last week about a public event that occurred within the last week.” Poems are due before midnight Friday PST. See the call to poets, submission link and list of Response Poems at Poets Respond.
