Rabbit Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal for non-fiction poetry, based in Melbourne, Australia (founded in mid-2011). A pioneer in the field, Rabbit intends to celebrate the potential for poetry to explore and interrogate the boundaries of non-fiction writing. Rabbit encourages poets to openly engage with auto/biography, history, politics, economics, mathematics, cultural analysis, science, the environment, and all other aspects of real world experience, recollection and interpretation.

Rabbit publishes all things poetry – poems, reviews, essays on poetry and poetics, interviews with poets, and visual art by poets – with an emphasis on new and emerging Rabbits (poets).

Some of the contributors to the journal include Michael Brennan, Stuart Cooke, Johanna Drucker, Kenneth Goldsmith, Duncan Hose, Michael Farrell, Jordie Albiston, Petra White, Alex Skovron, Ian McBryde, Kate Middleton, Jill Jones, Patrick Jones, Eileen Myles, Pete Spence, Ann Vickery, Lesley Wheeler and PiO.
