Rattle “Athlete Poets” Issue
Deadline January 15 (must be received by this date). The literary journal Rattle: Poetry for the 21st Century seeks submissions of unpublished poems for a feature on Athlete Poets in the Summer 2018 issue. Send 1-4 poems via Submittable (select the link to this themed call on their website). Payment is $100 for accepted work. Editors say, "'Athlete' might not be the first thing you think of when you think about a poet, which is why we thought it would be an interesting group to explore. The poems themselves don't have to be about athletics so long as the poets consider themselves athletes, with some reason. When you submit, be sure to include a brief note about your athletic background and how it affects your poetry, if at all. We no longer publish prose essays, but instead use these contributor notes as micro-essays at the back of each issue."
