Overview

Also included: a large selection of open poetry, interviews with formalists Rhina Espaillat and Timothy Steele, and the 2012 Rattle Poetry Prize winners.

Meet the Author

Founded in 1994 by Alan Fox, Rattle magazine operates under the simple premise that it doesn’t take a scholar to be moved by the written word—poetry is for everyone. That principal has guided Rattle through 38 issues, publishing the poetry of lawyers, landscapers, doctors and prisoners right alongside the stars of modern literature. The result is one of the most enjoyable and eclectic literary journals in the country, and one of the most-read.

Operating outside of poetry’s mainstream, Rattle often seeks out work by groups of poets that the academics have yet to embrace—genres like visual and slam poetry that don’t conform to traditional boundaries. Other issues gather together poets of similar racial or vocational backgrounds, to give their experiences a collective and interactive voice, and to provide a social context for individual works of art.
