Rattle Magazine publishes a poem each Sunday about an event that happened in the preceding week. Poets are invited to submit poems about current events via an online submissions manager. Payment is $50.
From Rattle’s website:
Every Sunday we publish one poem online that has been written about a current event that took place the previous week. This is an effort to show how poets react and interact to the world in real time, and to enter into the broader public discourse. … The deadline for submissions each week is midnight Friday.
I do not knowingly announce submission calls by publishers who do not fulfill their contractual obligations. However, readers are responsible for conducting their own due diligence when submitting work and negotiating contracts.
