RABBIT is a journal of nonfiction poetry. 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!

RABBIT also publishes book reviews, essays, interviews with poets, and visual artworks by poets. The editors regularly solicit this material, but are open to expressions of interest. We have a list of current titles available for review on the BOOKS FOR REVIEW page. For essays and interviews, please contact to discuss possible topics and subjects.

NB. We are able to pay all Australian contributors thanks to support from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, RMIT University and the non/fictionLab.
