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.
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.
