Call for Submissions: Poetry Based on an Image | Due July 31 - (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.
Rattle Magazine poses a monthly challenge to poets to write a poem based on a specific piece of visual art. They call it the Ekphrastic Challenge.
Rattle chooses two winners each month to receive online publication and $50. The piece of art for June is “No Name #1” by Ryan Schaufler. You can view the image and more details about the challenge at Ekphrastic Challenge | Rattle: Poetry.
(The image in this post is not “No Name #1.”)
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.
This blog is queer-friendly. i strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with queer/LGBTQIA characters and themes. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies,or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
