NOTE: Submissions to this category are NOT considered for publication. There is no entry fee or payment for participating. 

This is the entry portal for our monthly Critique of the Week drawing. Every Friday at 5pm ET, Rattle's editor hosts a livestreamed poetry critique on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, offering suggestions and feedback. The viewing audience is encouraged to participate. The goal is to help us all become better poets through the honest sharing of our reactions, similar to the experience of an MFA roundtable workshop. Be sure to follow us on Facebook or subscribe on YouTube so that you don't miss the weekly critique. 

During the last video each month, there will be a live drawing to choose the next set of participants. Every active submission in this category will be included in the drawing—but only one entry per person. 

Include two poems to be critiqued with your entry here, but if you'd like to change them after you are chosen, you will be able to do so. 

Note that videos will remain archived and viewable by the public either for one week or indefinitely (depending your selection on the next page). 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
