Event Details

The competition is organized by the Rattle, an American poetry magazine. The competition is open to writers worldwide.

Each poet may submit 15 – 30 pages of poems. Poems must be written in English.

Individual poems may be previously published in any format, but the manuscript as a whole must be unpublished as a collection.

Multiple entries by a single poet are accepted, however each manuscript must be treated as a separate entry, each with an additional $25 fee.

The $25 entry fee is a one-year subscription to Rattle (or a one-year extension for subscribers).

The three winners will each receive $5,000 and 500 author copies of their chapbook, which will also be distributed to all of Rattle’s subscribers.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
