Dear Eve,

I hope you’re having a pleasant spring. I’m writing now for a few reasons—first to announce the release of our new supplemental newsletter. RATTLE e.8 is a 32-page PDF, downloadable on our website, which contains content that expands upon this winter’s print issue.

Included are all of our regular features: a book interview, this time focusing on 2009 Rattle Poetry Prize winner Lynne Knight and her book Again, Art Beck on the nuances of translation, Dan Waber with a look at visual poetry, a formal suggestion from Gary Lehmann, and a preview of five poems from the forthcoming summer issue. We’re also happy to announce the winner of the 2010 Neil Postman Award for Metaphor.

You can download the e-Issue by clicking this link: http://rattle.com/eissues/eIssue8.pdf (3.3 MB pdf) If that doesn’t work, you can just go to www.rattle.com and click the banner at the top of the page.

This is always a good time in our production cycle to announce upcoming calls for submissions, and let you know what we’ll be looking for in the coming year, so I’ll list that information below.

Please don’t forget that less than half of the poetry in each issue is focused on the theme—the rest is open to any style, subject matter, or poet. We always enjoy reading submissions, and accept them by email and hardcopy, year-round, so never hesitate to send us work. Moreover, all submissions to Rattle are automatically considered for the annual Neil Postman Award for Metaphor, which we’ve just increased to $500. Visit www.rattle.com/submissions.htm for guidelines.

That’s it from us. We hope you enjoy this little electronic bonus, and thank you, always, for your support.

Best wishes,


CALLS FOR SUBMISSION (for details go to: http://www.rattle.com/callsforsubs.htm)


Just 4 U, BookFan, enjoy!

Why They Call Nuns...Nuns

The Pope brought a bunch of women to the monastery.

One of the priest said holy father, how many of these

women can we have sex with? The Pope said NONE...

and it kinda stuck!
