Call for Submissions: Poetry Based on an Image | Due June 30 - (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.


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.
