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! Please note that we do not accept previously published poems; simultaneous submissions are fine (provided you let us know immediately if your poems have been accepted elsewhere).
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.
