Rattle, a pretty hip poetry magazine, has a theme/tribute for each issue. For Summer 2009, the theme will be African American Poets. They are accepting submissions on February 2009. Here’s a quote from their website:
Every issue of RATTLE gathers poems from a specific ethnic, vocational, or social group, comprising a special section of about 20 pages. We’re currently seeking submissions from African-American poets for our Summer 2009 issue. We’re also seeking essays on the history and/or current state of African-American poetry. For more information and to learn how to submit, see our call for submissions page.
Obviously, you need to take advantage of this opportunity to get your work published. Make it happen, ya’ll.
