Rattle Call for Postcard Poems

From Rattle Magazine:

Ends on January 15, 2020

Our Summer 2020 issue will feature to Postcard Poems. The poems may be any style or subject, but must have been written on and be accompanied by a related postcard. The issue itself will likely include both the poems as written on the postcards and the postcards themselves, so we need to know who created both the postcard artwork and the poem. Homemade postcards, artists you know, or public domain/Creative Commons licensed art is extremely preferred, but we’ll do our best to work with what we want to publish. Our goal is to support and encourage the act of writing poems on postcards and sharing them in this personal and intimate way. For an idea of how postcard poetry works, read our essay by Paul Nelson about his annual August Postcard Poetry Festival. CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT.

    I have sent out 30+ postcards for the postcard festival. These are gone to the senders. I have plenty of received poetry from other participants, but I’m not interested in publishing others’ poetry postcards.

    So my question is: can I submit the poetry that I used on the postcards I sent out originally?

    • Greg, yes. Rattle’s instructions say: “Please send up to four of your own postcard poems as image or word files. Payment for all work published is $100 per poem and a one-year print subscription to Rattle.” Good luck. Paul

    Do we send the actual postcard?

    After 5 minutes I figured out the link to the submission form is the image. Can you please post the link as text as well, for easier identification? Thanks.
