“There’s not a bad poet in first grade. None of them are anything but fresh and original … they don’t know how to avoid being original.”
—Sharon Olds, from Rattle #17

Rattle published an issue in 1998 of children’s poems, which is now out of print.  This year the editors want to begin an annual tradition of publishing work by young authors.

Be part of the 2013 issue!  If you are 15 or younger, you may submit up to 5 poems for consideration. Please visit the Rattle website for all the details about this wonderful opportunity to become a published poet in a premier journal.

Good luck, writers!
