Call for Submissions: Poetry of Immigrants | Due Oct. 15 - (Expired)

Calls for Submissions For Writers

This submission call is now closed. You can find calls that are still accepting contributions at Calls for Submissions.


The Spring 2018 issue of Rattle magazine will feature the work of immigrant poets. Writers may submit up to four previously unpublished poems OR four pages of short poems, as well as a contributor’s note explaining how their immigrant identity affects their poetry. Payment is $100.

Some additional details from the original call:

The poems may be written on any subject, in any style or length, but must be written by those who no longer reside in the country of their birth. As always, the poem need not be about the topic; the goal is to explore and celebrate the range of work immigrant poets are producing. Please explain how this applies to you and how this work affects your poetry in your contributor note.

See the complete call and links to additional submission requirements at: Rattle Submission Manager—Immigrant Poets (poems).


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.
