Rabbit Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal for ‘non-fiction’ poetry.

COMING SOON: Issue #14: Deviations guest edited by Stuart Cooke.




Submission deadline: February 10, 2015

Rabbit is now calling for submissions of ‘nonfiction’ long poems, or suites of poems, for its 15th issue on the theme of BIOGRAPHY. If you are concerned that your take on the ‘real world’ is slightly abstract, don’t worry–include a line or two to tell us why you categorise your poem as ‘nonfiction.’ We are very much open to poetry experiments!

Send 1 to 3 poems (200 lines maximum) to: rabbitpoetry@hotmail.com.

Please include on the first page of your submission:

• full contact details (postal address, email)
• 50-word bio
• a short response (50 words) to the following question: what can poetry offer to the writing of a life?

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.
