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 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.
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.
